Volkswagen first introduced the R32 back in 2004. Now the model is back and will be presented in Chicago at the Auto Show. The model is powered by a 3.2-liter naturally aspirated 15-degree narrow angle V6 engine that can deliver 250 horsepower and 236 lb. ft. of torque. The model is capable of accelerating from 0 to 62 mph in 6.4 seconds and the DSG transmission sends the power to the rear wheels. The R32 boasts a long list of safety features including ESP that reacts to critical driving situations in milliseconds by controlling the speed of individual wheels and Anti-Lock Braking System that helps prevent wheels from locking under heavy braking. On the inside it features cues from racing with aluminum-look foot pedals and deep front sports seats. Also, the carmaker equipped it with automatic climate control, ten-speaker premium CD stereo system, rain sensing wipers, automatic dimming interior rear-view mirror and a lot more.
First introduced in 2004 to an enthusiastic reception, the R32 delivers the ultimate in Volkswagen sports performance with dynamic handling and refined road manners. Now Volkswagen of America, Inc. today announced the return of its motorsports-inspired R32 at the Chicago Auto Show.
The R32's power comes from a 3.2 L naturally aspirated 15-degree narrow angle V6 engine. With 250 horsepower and 236 ft. lbs. of torque, the R32 is all muscle. The standard 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system transfers at least 75 percent of available torque to the rear wheels. Volkswagen's acclaimed DSG® transmission allows for seamless gear changes and accelerates from 0-60 in approximately 6.4 seconds.
With a fully independent multi-link rear suspension that sits wider and lower than its GTI sibling, the R32 flaunts its authority both inside and out. Twin chrome exhausts, 18-inch alloy wheels, Bi-Xenon headlights, a uniquely shaped front grille and R32 badging distinguish this car from anything else on the road. A rear roof spoiler and deep front spoiler, coupled with body-colored bumpers, side bump strips, door handles and door mirrors, add to the streamlined, sporty look.
The R32 boasts a long list of safety features, including Electronic Stabilization Program that reacts to critical driving situations in milliseconds by controlling the speed of individual wheels; and a confidence-inspiring Anti-Lock Braking System that helps to prevent wheels from locking under heavy braking. Brake Assist boosts brake pressure in emergency braking situations and the state-of-the-art Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution automatically varies the amount of force applied to each of a vehicle's brakes based on road and driving conditions.
Inside, the R32 takes it cues from racing with aluminum-look foot pedals and deep front sports seats. Features such as automatic climate control (Climatronic™), ten-speaker premium CD stereo system, rain sensing wipers, automatic dimming interior rear-view mirror, heatable front seats and heated washer nozzles, anti-theft alarm, cruise control and trip computer are standard luxuries that complement this performance-driven champ.
