The Golf R1,4.

Optimised for short jaunts, long cruises and track racing.

Things are moving fast with engineering. Especially when it comes in the form of the Golf R. With 221 kW (300 PS) output and 400 Nm torque with the new 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox DSG, this powerhouse has more muscle that any of its predecessors. Acceleration to 100 km/h (with DSG) in 4.7 seconds means that it is in its element on every road. But it is most at home on the race track. You will notice this at the latest when the launch control start propels you to breathtaking speeds and pure excitement.

R “Performance” titanium exhaust system from Akrapovič

As with almost all Akrapovič systems, the exhaust system for the Golf R is also made from titanium. Not only does this reduce the weight, the Akrapovič exhaust also gives the Golf R an unmistakable sound. Depending on the driving mode, the sound spectrum can range from the sound of a comfortable journey to a motor sports roar. The acoustics typical of Akrapovič exhausts particularly occur at high engine speeds and when changing gear – precisely and perfectly balanced.
