The Volkswagen Golf R Wolfsburg Wagon is one of the most highly-sought after Volkswagen special edition vehicles ever made. To the untrained eye, it’s difficult to detect anything out of the ordinary from the innocuous looking Volkswagen Wagon. However, upon closer inspection, the 19inch special Pretoria wheels, beefed up body kit, quad exhausts and a generous smattering of ‘Wolfsburg’ and ‘R’ insignias elude to something slightly more exciting than its appearance would suggest.
The Volkswagen Golf R Wolfsburg wagon features the same 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine as the standard Volkswagen Golf R, pitched to produce 206kw of power and 380Nm of torque. The bigger and heavier Golf R wagon paired with Volkswagen’s brilliant 6 Speed Dual Clutch Automatic sprints to 100km/h in 5.2sec, marginally slower than the 4.9sec recorded by its hatchback counterpart.
This Oryx White Pearl example with 6699km on the clock is one of only three, Volkswagen Golf R Wolfsburg Wagon’s currently for sale in Australia. While it may never reach bona fide collector status, the Golf R Wagon is sure to hold its value better than the all-too-common hatch variant.
