High-performance German novelty was captured in broad daylight on a public road. The car did not receive a single gram of camouflage. Presentation of new items is scheduled for September this year.

When Volkswagen introduced the eighth generation of its hugely popular Golf hatchback in the second half of October 2019, it made a big announcement. In 2020, the company will present not one, not two, or even three, but as many as four versions of this model, which will receive a more powerful power plant. It’s about GTI, GTI TCR, GTD and R – the latter will appear later this year. It was previously confirmed that the best-selling version with the designation GTI (Grand Tourer Injection) will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year.
 
According to rumors, the presentation of the most powerful performance of the Golf compact hatchback, which will receive the R index, will debut in September 2020.

 A couple of minutes ago, an Instagram user posted a photo showing a prototype VW Golf R 2021 model year. The author of the photo drove along the roads of Spain, near the Applus IDIADA training ground near Barcelona.

It is worth noting the twin tailpipes of the exhaust system, as well as the lowered suspension. Most likely, we have before us a prototype of a novelty, which probably did not have all the serial parts. For example, the new R logo is missing. In general, the car may seem quite a normal version of the new Golf, but it is not.

 As already known, under the hood of the VW Golf R there will be a 329-horsepower engine. That is, the increase in power, compared to the current version of the car (seventh generation), will be 41 hp. Well, a less powerful version of the GTI will be able to boast 241 hp.
