Volkswagen Golf R Special Edition Heading to Australia

As the Volkswagen Golf R Mk7 fades into its twilight years, Volkswagen is making sure it doesn’t go off quietly.

Volkswagen Australia have confirmed that a new iteration of the Mk7 Golf R — limited to just 400 units — is heading down under, complete with an Akrapovic exhaust system and various other goodies that were previous reserved for the European market specific ‘R Performance Options’ range.

Headlining the list of upgrades is an active exhaust system from Akrapovic that is hand built from titanium and perfectly poised to unlock the DSG farts that have become synonymous with the Golf R and Golf GTI models. In addition to improved acoustics, the unit also shaves 7kg from the standard Golf R exhaust system.

The Special Edition will also benefit from the brakes and wheels that were fitted to the Volkswagen GTI Clubsport — the car that briefly held the Nürburgring Nordschliefe front-wheel-drive record with a lap of 7min 46.2sec lap. The drilled rotors add improved stopping power and a weight saving of 2kg.

Surprisngly, the turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine won’t receive any special treatment with power figures remaining at 213kW and 380Nm.

The Golf R Special Edition will be difficult to distinguish from regular Golf R models with the only giveaway being a special “R Performance Options” badge and gloss black door mirrors.

The Volkswagen Golf R 400 Special Edition attracts a $5000 premium over the standard Golf R, with prices starting at $61,990 in Australia.
