Volkswagen Golf R 400 production is uncertain image

dThe German based automaker Volkswagen is not sure whether the new one-off Golf R 400 Concept will be hitting the production line.

The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet, but according to a report published by the guys at Autocar, the Volkswagen Golf R 400’s future is uncertain. Our source is saying that the car manufacturer is currently looking for a suitable gearbox which can handle the 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque, produced by the concept car. The most plausible solution is, apparently, a 10-speed DSG transmission, which can handle up to 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque.

Power will be sent to the all-wheel drive, allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds, before reaching a limited top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph). The Volkswagen Golf R 400 is powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which is producing a total output of 400 HP (294 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. The model in question has been unveiled back in April, during the Beijing Motor Show and it should have hit the production line, officially, over the following months.
