REVEALED IN SEPTEMBER last year, Volkswagen's 199kW über-Golf, the 2010 Golf R, is expected to arrive in Australian showrooms around the middle of this year.

Today, VW has released another batch of photos for its newest hot hatch, shot at the R's international driving presentation in Austria.

While early speculation last year had the Golf R offering around 220kW, technical details revealed at Frankfurt confirmed a more modest 199kW and 350Nm of torque - enough to shoot the all-wheel-drive hatch to 100km/h in a very agreeable 5.7 seconds.

In November, Volkswagen Australia Managing Director Anke Koeckler confirmed the Golf R's upcoming local debut, although Ms Koeckler remained tight-lipped on specific dates.

“We expect to have it (the Golf R) here in mid-2010,” Ms Koeckler said. “It fits very well into the Australian market.

“It will be easy to live with as a day-to-day proposition, and will be a very practical and enjoyable package.”
