    Talking NEW MK7 GOLF R.Alternative to RS3?

    New Golf R opens for ordering this week

    04 November 2013 Fastest accelerating production Golf yet is real firecracker


    VW1319-13

    The new Golf R opens for ordering this week, adding real fireworks to the range. Keep an eye on Desktop for when it will appear on our vehicle ordering system.
    The hottest of hatchbacks is the fastest-accelerating Golf yet, and comes with a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 300PS and 380Nm of torque.




    The power is transferred to the road via the latest 4MOTION four-wheel drive system which enables the R to accelerate from standstill to 62mph in just 5.3 seconds (compared with 5.7 seconds for the previous model), or 4.9 seconds when fitted with the optional six-speed DSG gearbox. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.




    The new Golf R isn’t just faster, either; with officially verified fuel consumption of 39.8 pg on the combined cycle (40.9mpg for the DSG version), and CO2 emissions as low as 159 g/km it is up to 18 per cent more efficient than its predecessor.

    The volkswagen.co.uk configurator for the model is due to be completed on 2 January. In the meantime, the Golf R features on the site’s ‘Coming soon’ page.


    Download an electronic copy of the price list below.
    Dynaudio sound system will not be available at launch and is expected to be released from mid-2014. Park Assist will not be available on Golf R.

    I think the increase in power and sharper set up has helped, its now been added to the VW configurator if anyone wants a look..
    Configurator : Volkswagen UK

    Once you start adding the extras it can run upto nearly £40k in a 5dr with DSG gearbox.
    Cant wait to get one in at work in the new year to get some hands on experience with it.
