The Volkswagen Golf R debuts the limited edition 20 Years

We are facing a quickly recognizable model. Logically, for the creation of the limited edition 20 years The Golf R has been taken as a starting point. The new Golf R 20 Years maintains all the characteristic features of the “standard” version. In addition, it incorporates differentiating design elements. The bodywork is available in two shades, Lapiz Blue and White.

The color chosen for the bodywork will influence the finish of the 19-inch alloy wheels. They will wear a glossy black finish if the bodywork is blue or, on the contrary, if we opt for a white exterior, they will adopt a blue hue. By the way, they are wrapped in Michelin Pilot tires. Other details to note are the exterior rear-view mirror housings, the badges with the number 20 and the new logo that is projected on the ground when the doors are opened.

The most powerful Volkswagen Golf R engine

Under the hood is one of the main keys to the 20 Years limited edition that debuts the Golf R. The German sports compact is powered by a 2.0-litre TSI four-cylinder petrol engine modified to reach 333 hp. We are facing an increase of 13 CV in relation to the model that we can currently find in dealerships.

The engine is associated with a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic gearbox
and a system of 4Motion all-wheel drive. The brand has also made adjustments to the transmission in order to improve its performance. Especially when going uphill. Also, the turbocharger now runs at a constant speed at part throttle. This allows for a faster boot.

through the sports exhaust system signed by Akrapovic emanates the melody generated by the gasoline engine. And if that wasn’t enough, Volkswagen has developed a new feature called ‘Emotional Start’ that revs the engine up to 2,500 rpm at startup.
