The top of the compact par excellence is the R, the Volkswagen Golf Rversion. Shows an aesthetic that is more dynamic than the “normal” range and variants GTD, GTI and GTI Performance and, more or less, to the same height as the new incorporations Clubsport and Clubsport S. Nonetheless, it is still quite conservative in his image, not intended to scare with aesthetics.
The German mark had a nice project as it was the Golf R400, the dieselgate passed Bill and they had to cancel it. The Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S has earned the love of the public, since its benefits are of true sport despite only having traction at the front axle. This variant may have overshadowed partially to the Golf R, something that in the House of the car of the people want change. Volkswagen wants the Golf R is the maximum exponent.
Thus was born the Volkswagen Golf R Performance. The main difference is that the Golf R Performance seeks greater aesthetic differentiation, more Sportiness and more equipment. Among other things presents a braking system improved with perforated discs, an aerodynamic than 20 kilos the load increases aerodynamics kit (although we do not know at what speed) and also new bumper and air intakes. In addition, you can install a system of manufactured by Akrapovic titanium exhaust. This sportier version uses tires virtually in competition, such as the Pirelli trophy R.
Under the engine of the Golf R Performance no changes, what disappoints us somewhat. Still using the engine 2.0 TSI 310 HPand 400 Nm; the same as his cousin Audi S3 mounts. This is associated with a dual-clutch and transmission wheel drive 4Motion system. The Golf R maximum speed is 250 km/h, while limited electronically; the Golf R Performance eliminates this limiter for what have 267 km/h. Its acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h is 4.6 seconds.
