When it was launched in 2010, the Volkswagen Golf Mk 6 R held the fabled title of being ‘the fastest and most powerful hatchback to ever wear the VW Badge’. Subtle styling tweaks helped to differentiate the range-topping R from the rest of the Golf family, to the untrained eye however, you would be hard pressed to detect the understated differences. The Golf’s combination of; restrained styling, 4 motion all-wheel-drive and a strong 2.0L turbocharged engine has made it the ideal platform for tuners looking to build a savagely-fast sleeper.
The headline figure of this heavily modified Golf R is its power output- an impressive 268kW at all four wheels on pump fuel. Coupled with improved suspension, sticky tyres and launch control, this unsuspecting Golf R will accelerate to 100km/h at roughly the same rate as a $500,000 Lamborghini Huracan.
Boasting a long list of bolt on modifications thanks to the team at APR, this Golf R features an upgraded GTX2867r turbocharger and a built motor to accommodate the substantial increase in power and ensure longevity of the engine. Handling and stopping upgrades including; Volkswagen Racing 6 piston brake upgrade, KW Coilover suspension and Whiteline Swaybar’s mean that this Golf R is ready to surprise at the dragstrip or on the racetrack.
