Remember the Golf R400 concept from 2014? What about the R420, which was rumored to be the later production version? Dieselgate event and Volkswagen pulled the plug on the ultimate Golf R In 2022, the peepers from Wolfsburg have unleashed a more muscular version of their hot hatchback by introducing the “20 Years Edition” to celebrate two decades of R-badged cars.

He took the VW R to Youtube For a preview preview of the very yellow Golf R 333 Limited Edition ahead of its official debut scheduled for May 31st. The number “333” most likely refers to the production Pferdestärke (PS) engine, which would exactly match the aforementioned “20 years version”. If our assumption is correct, this will be another Golf R with 328 bhp (245 kilowatts), making it the best out there. As for torque, we expect its 309 lb-ft (420 Nm) to echo the previous Special Edition.

The 27-second teaser video shows a black “333” decal running along the bottom of the doors, along with black side mirror caps and Akrapovič’s quad exhaust system. Also worth noting are the 19-inch Estoril wheels with blue brake calipers. Just like the 2022 version, it will likely only be sold as a hatchback though the regular Golf R is also available in some markets as a more practical wagon.

Provided it uses the same configuration of the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, the mighty Golf R will sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in 4.6 seconds on its way to an electronically controlled 168 mph (270 km/h). ).

With Volkswagen saying the facelifted Golf will launch in 2024, the upcoming special edition will be based on the current model. It certainly won’t come cheap considering the Golf R 20 Years retails from under €60,000 at home in Germany.
