One of the most anticipated models, Volkswagen Golf VII R, was yet again spied ahead of its possible official launch in Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2013.
The car has been given some aggressive looks including front fascia, beefier side skirts and a quad exhaust setup. The new Golf VII R comes with a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged engine which is capable of delivering an impressive 300 hp (224 kW) as per the recent reports.
While the Golf VI R was 150 kg (330 lbs) heavier than the Golf VI GTI, the new version will only be 100 kg (220 lbs) heavier than the recently introduced GTI variant. The new model will come with a sports-tuned suspension, 19 or 20 inch alloys, high-performance braking system and a tweaked electronic stability system that can be deactivated.
The highest variant of the new Golf VII may feature an updated electronically-controlled mechanical front limited slip differential as a standard feature but will be an optional feature for the GTI variant. The car is capable of accelerating to 62 mph (100 kmph) in less than six seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph (250 kmph) which will probably be electronically-limited.
The pricing of the Volkswagen Golf VII R may start from around GBP 30,000 which is approximately $ 46,000.
