Just maybe though.
With things like 35k SUVs (Seat/VW) getting the Golf R motor hard to imagine future Golf Rs keeping the same power unit with the same power. Would devalue the Golf R brand quite a bit imo.
Would be great if they did put a 5cyl lump in it (they have been previous V5 VWs of course, wife had one) but i think it will be a mild hybrid spike to the next R instead.
It's an old video and motor1 just republished it lol. Definitely nothing to do with VW. It's an owners car and he's just put the 2.5 lump in. There's no testing or anything, the guys got a yellow L on the back, he's just learning the track with an instructor lol.
