Volkswagen is teasing a new version of the Golf mk7 – almost certainly for a 2013 Geneva Motor Show debut – which appears to be the new Golf R. You can tell through the teaser picture that the car has large air intakes in its bumper, and that is an R signature.
Like the previous version, the new Golf R will get its power from a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, hooked up to an all-wheel-drive system. It will be more powerful than the outgoing model, though, with the an estimated output of around 300 horsepower.
Certainly something to look forward too. We will bring you official details and pictures as soon as they’re released.
