New Volkswagen Golf R could get a more powerful version

February 2, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

There were rumors that Volkswagen was preparing a hotter version of the all-new Golf R, and it seems that confirmation has been right in front of us all this time in the Golf Mk8 owner’s manual.

The Volkswagen Golf R with its 320 horsepower doesn’t really lack power, but it looks like an even more powerful version is coming soon, in which the 2.0 TSI will put out almost 334 horsepower. VolksWizard shared the engine information on YouTube a couple of days before the 2021 Golf R premiered last November.

The sporty top version of the Golf R is already being tested in various locations, including in the UK, where a local Volkswagen fan got hold of the Golf’s owner’s manual while testing the Golf GTI and found something special on the engine list. Under the well-known 320 PS 2.0 TSI for the Golf R, there was another power source with a converted power of almost 334 PS, up 14 PS. larger, like a modified version of the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (codenamed DNFF). The maximum torque of 420 Nm is the same as the Golf R.

In all likelihood, in North America, the Volkswagen Golf R will be offered with two powerplant options, with a 6-speed manual transmission and a 7-speed DSG transmission. On the other side of the Atlantic, however, if the current Golf R is the benchmark, it will probably only get a dual-clutch box.

The type of this block, as can be seen from the photo, is not said anything, but, logically, it is an ultra-fast version of the Golf R. For a long time there have been rumors about the Golf R Plus, which, according to some reports, will be available even with 400 hp. The regular Golf R has just arrived, so it will probably be a while before the super-fast derivative gets the green light in Wolfsburg. It is possible that the newest car will be released in a limited edition as a special edition.
