PERHAPS ONE of the most hotly anticipated debuts this year, technical details and images for the 2010 Volkswagen Golf R were revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show last week.

Today, Volkswagen has released new promotional footage featuring the aggressively styled Golf R driving alongside its even more dramatic-looking sibling the Scirocco R.


Successor to the R32 - a line that started with the menacing Golf IV version and ended with the luxuriously appointed but enjoyable Golf V R32 - the Golf R represents a new approach to range-topping performance models at Volkswagen.

Power has been increased over the 184kW V6 that powered the R32; its turbocharged 2.0 litre four-cylinder petrol engine developing 199kW and 350Nm of torque.

With help from the fourth-generation Haldex all-wheel-drive system, Volkswagen says the Golf R will reach 100km/h in 5.7 seconds with the six-speed manual and 5.5 seconds when equipped with VW's DSG transmission.


Fuel consumption is rated at just 8.5 l/100km - a 2.2 l/100km improvement over the outgoing R32.

The Golf R's most obvious styling update comes in the form of a more aggressive bumper with daytime running lights, joined by 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels and an 'R-emblazoned' piano black grille.

LED tail-lights, also updated from the Golf and GTI, sit above R32-inspired centre-mounted twin exhaust pipes protruding from the largely-unchanged rear bumper.


No pricing or launch details have been announced, but more information is expected over coming weeks.
