Journalists captured the camouflaged prototype of the high-performance Volkswagen Arteon R German race track. The car should get a 330-horsepower engine.

  The Volkswagen Arteon R is an even more stylish version of the flagship sedan of the German brand, which will also receive a significant improvement in performance. These “spy” images show us a prototype of the novelty, which is undergoing high-speed tests on the Nurburgring race track. The car wears a very “light” camouflage, which is an indication that the production version of the car can be shown to us very soon.

Volkswagen engineers use white tape to hide the shape of the bumper. Compared to the existing Arteon in its usual version, the air inlet openings in the corners of the bumper are larger. Behind the wheels of the bronze metallic blue brake calipers are visible. The dark color offers excellent contrast with the white body of this car.
 
At the rear there is a tiny black spoiler on the edge of the trunk. The company has camouflage panels on each side of the rear bumper to hide something in its updated appearance. A pair of trapezoidal tailpipes exhaust system comes out of each corner below the bumper.

 Earlier it was reported that Arteon R will receive a new 3.0-liter turbo-charged VR6 engine with a capacity of about 404 horsepower. Now, there are rumors that the new product will use a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the “charged” new generation Golf R, which is reportedly developing 330 hp. Power will flow to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
