Default VW is once again testing its 5 cylinder Golf R

GIMME!!!!!!!! The car was originally slated to be a real thing but then dieselgate hit and it was scrapped.....but its back out testing again. Maybe a swan song for the mk7?

Sold as long as it has the beefier dsg from the RS3 also.

Weird that one has a sun roof

It wont get made I'm sure...and even if it does, we wont get it. The MK8 is supposed to go into production next year so they would have to push this out IMMEDIATELY.

Could just be testing the drivetrain setup in the current chassis.

I'll say this much...if I ever sell my current car, I'd likely get into another R without question.

The Audi 5 cylinder in an AWD golf chassis has always been high on my list.
