The future generation of the Golf R has been recently spied while it was being tested and, despite its heavy camouflage, the model is revealing an aggressive design.
The 2014 Volkswagen Golf, or, we should say the 2015 model year, will get the most generous air vents and airfoils yet, along with an exhaust system with four tailpipes and a radar in the front end. The model will receive larger brakes, high performance tires and an improved suspension system in order to handle the updated 2.0 liter turbo engine, which is expected to get more than 280 horsepower. The unit will be mated to either a six-speed manual or a DSG transmission. Four-wheel drive will be used and the model might hit the market in late 2014. No other details are known on the third generation of the Golf R yet.
As a quick reminder, the current version of the Golf R is receiving the 2.0 liter four-cylinder TSI Turbo engine, which is producing a total output of 255 PS and 330 Nm of torque, available between 2,400 and 5,200 rpm. The unit is mated to a six-speed dual clutch DSG transmission and power is being sent to the 4Motion all-wheel drive system. The most powerful Golf yet can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of 250 km/h.
