2011 Volkswagen Golf R

A hot version of the Golf to rival the Ford Focus RS, Mazda 3 MPS and Audi S3 has long been rumoured and our spy photographers have captured it several times.

The reports claim it will be largely based on the Scriocco R and will feature VW’s 4Motion AWD system.

The VW Golf R is a successor for the R32 but it won’t use that car’s 3.2-litre V6 according to the reports. Instead, it will get a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which produces 261bhp and around 258lb ft of torque.

Its 0-62mph time for the six-speed manual is expected to be 6.5secs, with the DSG-equipped model capable of getting to 62mph in 6.4secs.

Other features claimed to appear on the R include LED lights, new wheels, sills and badges, and twin rear exhausts. Inside it gets two-tone sports seats, aluminium pedals and R badging.

No prices have been confirmed by VW, but expect to pay around £25,000 when it goes on sale in the UK next year.
