A test prototype of the powerful German station wagon was caught off guard at the Nürburgring racetrack. The novelty, which will be able to boast of impressive dynamic characteristics, quite confidently passed high-speed corners.

Just last week, Volkswagen unveiled the most practical version of the Golf 8 family, now called the Golf Variant, a station wagon. In the R-Line, the car looks sportier than its regular counterpart. In addition, the new version of the station wagon has a more spacious interior and trunk. The Golf Variant is longer than before, reaching 4.63 meters in total length with a wheelbase of 2.68 meters. It is at least 6.6 cm longer than its predecessor.

The German brand is also working on an off-road version of the Golf wagon, which will receive the Alltrack designation.

This time, a prototype of the powerful Golf R station wagon was captured on the Nürburgring racetrack, where it underwent a series of high-speed tests. While we’re not 100 percent sure that this is indeed a variant of the Golf R, we lean toward the notion because of its aggressive behavior on the track.

Interestingly, the video also shows that the Golf R is quite confident in sharp turns at high old age. Note we have already seen how it is tested this way, but this one further fuels our excitement.

The Golf R, a five-door hatchback and station wagon, is said to debut by the end of this year.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that they want to establish the production of Volkswagen electric cars in Ukraine. The Ukrainian enterprise “Eurocar” is going to start producing electric cars of the Volkswagen group. This opportunity appeared after the Verkhovna Rada voted for two bills that provide an incentive for the development of electric transport.
