Volkswagen itsn’t just relying on the 60bhp boost from the forthcoming regular VW Golf GTI. We hear it will use four-wheel drive to tame the thrust, rather than the trick front diffs employed by the Focus RS and new Renaultsport Megane 250.
And to make up for the additional weight, the Golf GTI-R will apparently undergo a weight loss programme. We’re thinking less premium than the comfort-oriented R32 – so fewer goodies and maybe even some structural lightening.
