Volkswagen Golf R has been unleashed. It's set to be VW's fastest-ever hatch and the all-new four-wheel-drive Golf R has made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The Golf R is powered by the EA888 2.0-litre TSI turbo petrol engine as used in the Golf GTI, but a new cylinder head, pistons and turbo have boosted power to 296bhp 30bhp more than the old Golf R, and 69bhp more than a GTI with the Performance Package. Torque is up 30Nm to 380Nm, too the same figure as the Golf GTD. The clutch has been uprated in the Golf R, and buyers will get a choice of short-shift six-speed manual or six-speed DSG gearboxes. Manual models sprint from 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds, while the DSG cuts this to 4.9 seconds. Top speed is limited to 155mph.
