Volkswagen Golf R Mk8 gets Drift Mode like an AMG A45S

Launched last year, the all-wheel drive (AWD) Volkswagen Golf R Mk8 came with some truly tire-shredding numbers: 320 PS and 420 Nm from a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine.While those numbers are certainly going to tear up other hot hatches, there is one feature on this Golf R that will terrify the tyres and that is “Drift” mode. Yes, the flagship performance European hatchback has a feature that will entice you to stock up on cheap tyres that you can play around with.Available on the Go

Volkswagen has launched the all-new 2021 Volkswagen Golf R Mk8 to the world and it is the most powerful Golf ever. The flagship performance variant of the Golf range is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine that produces 320 PS and 420 Nm.The all-new Golf R features permanent all-wheel drive which is pretty much a standard across its 5 generations.

This Volkswagen Golf R makes more power than a Lamborghini Aventador!

Ask anyone who has ever driven a Volkswagen Golf R and they’ll tell you that it’s no slouch. However, German tuner ‘The Turbo Engineers’ thought that it needs a little more pep in its step.Enter what could possibly be the only five-cylinder Golf R in the world. The stock four-pot was swapped for a 2.5-litre turbo unit from the Audi RS3 but with a name like ‘The Turbo Engineers’, they took it upon themselves to strap a bigger turbo on it. Because that

Excuse Me? No More New Golf R?

The generation of Golf (MK7) has been around for seven years, and it's pretty much a textbook step to proceed with another model renewal. Volkswagen recently released a press release detailing its full line-up for the 2020 model year. The name of Golf R, however, seems to be marked out of the curriculum.Later in Volkswagen's official response, we find no relief for those who concrened about the layoff.  Except for the hot all-wheel-drive hatchback which reached the end of production

Mk8 Volkswagen Golf Country – a jacked up 4WD Golf

What you’re seeing here is not an official variant from Volkswagen, but rather a rendering of 'what if VW decides to deck the new Golf with a crossover treatment.' This rendering here is done by Kleber Silva, an automotive designer.At the 1989 Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen introduced the Golf Country – a four-wheel-drive Golf with lifted suspension. Only less than 8,000 units were made during its three years production because back then crossover wasn’t really a thing a

Like the recent surge in Malaysias Covid-19 cases, the headlining numbers the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan R makes are unignorable: 320 PS, 420 Nm and only 4.9 seconds to reach 0-100 km/h.Itll naturally draw parallels to the VW Golf R Mk8 and thats completely justifiable, since both of them share the same powertrain: EA888 evo4 2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder mill and the DQ500 7-speed dual-clutch automatic (DSG).Also appearing in the hottest Tiguan yet is a new all wheel drive (AWD) system: 4Mo
