The hottest production version of the Volkswagen Golf until now, the Golf R, in its new generation, is about to become available for pre-order in the United States, starting from the 8th of January.

One of the first obvious choices when buying a new hot hatch these days should be the Volkswagen Golf R, besides others, mostly because you will be getting a very, very quick car. The first units of the model will become available for pre-order starting with the 8th of January, in the United States, as the company has recently announced, with a 500 USD reservation fee. The carmaker says that all of the first 500 units will be identical, getting the Lapiz Blue Metallic exterior, DCC & Nav and 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels.

Some of the other features which will become available for these cars include the Park Distance control, the DCC (Adaptive damping system), Fender Premium Audio System, satellite navigation system, VW Driver Gear R accessory kit adding the VIN specific certificate, carbon fiber keychain and VW R watch. Under its hood we will find the same 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbo engine with 292 HP (218 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 6-speed DSG and the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system. Prices for the model will kick off at 36,595 USD.
