Volkswagen is planning on introducing a production version of the Golf R 400 Concept, which has been recently unveiled at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show.
The German based automaker Volkswagen has initially announced, in the official press release, that the newly unveiled Golf R 400 will not be getting a production version, but according to the guys at Car and Driver, the model in question will be hitting the assembly line. Our source is saying that the information has been received from VW’s Research and Development boss Heinz-Jakob Neusser.
As you may recall, the new Volkswagen Golf R 400 has a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under its hood, which is producing no less than 400 HP (294 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes just 3.9 seconds in the new hot hatch and top speed stands at 280 km/h (174 mph). The one-off vehicle is riding on 19-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in 235/35 tires. The cabin has been equipped with motorsport shell seats with built-in head restraints and they have been covered in carbon leather and Alcantara, with a yellow contrast stitching.
