Limited editions abound on the auto market. A few weeks ago, volkswagen presented a special version of its Golf 8 R to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Produced only for one year, this “20 years” variant of the sports compact is now offered in its prices for the French market.
This special anniversary Volkswagen Golf 8 R therefore pays homage to the first Golf badged “R”, released just 20 years ago. For the occasion, the car gains a few horsepower and goes from 320 to 333 hp, drawn from the 2.0 liter TSI block. Still equipped with 4Motion all-wheel drive, the Golf R 20 Years sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds.
Stylistically, the changes are minor. The sports car receives an imposing spoiler and 19 alloy wheels painted in Estoril blue. The seats are in nappa leather with an embroidered R logo. For the first time in a Golf, some carbon elements consume space in the cabin.
