Volkswagen Golf R coming to Frankfurt

The German automaker Volkswagen has been working at a high performance version of their iconic hatchback named Golf named R. From what it seems, the Volkswagen Golf R will be superior in the range (and in performances) in comparison to the Volkswagen Golf GTI. The public debut of the Volkswagen Golf R will take place next week in Germany during the 2009 edition of the Frankfurt Auto Show. Unfortunately, until now we have few official details. Still, from what it seems the Volkswagen Golf R will get its power from a 2.0 liter four cylinder turbocharged engine that will have an output of about 270 or 280 horsepower. It is important to mention that the same 2.0 liter four cylinder turbocharged engine is currently used by the new Volkswagen Scirocco R.

We do not know until now if the German automaker Volkswagen will decide to use a four wheel drive system for the Volkswagen Golf R or if they will decide to use the front wheel drive system that is also used in the Scirocco R and the Volkswagen Golf GTI.

The Volkswagen Golf R will also have a new body kit that is somewhat similar to the one available on hte Volkswagen Scirocco R. The body kit will be completed by a series of features including darkened tail lights, twin central exhaust pipes, darkened headlamps and a set of bigger five spoke alloy wheels. The Volkswagen Golf R will be offered in two versions, including a version with five doors and a version with three doors. We will be able to bring you more information next week as we get closer to the opening of the Frankfurt Auto Show.

Because the Volkswagen Golf R and the Volkswagen Scirocco R seem to be so similar from a lot of aspects, you have below two photos of the Volkswagen Scirocco R, because we do not have any official photos of the Volkswagen Golf R.
