Visitors can sign up with Volkswagen R to experience the action from a racer’s eye-view of the famed Silverstone national circuit from the passenger seat of a Golf R, optimised for short jaunts, long cruises and track racing.
Things are moving fast with engineering. Especially when it comes in the form of the new Golf R. With 228 kW (310 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 4.6 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.
