VW Golf R

The next-generation VW Golf R will be revealed in 2 weeks. Nice!

Volkswagen will reportedly show its Golf VII R concept at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, which kicks off with press days on March 5. You won’t have to wait that long to see what’s encased in this giant block of ice, as VW promises an “ausbruch” (break-out) in just two weeks.

Word is that the new Golf R will get the turbocharged 2.0-liter EA888 engine currently used in a variety of Audi and VW vehicles, including the Audi TT and the VW GTI. World Car Fans theorizes that it could put out as much as 290 horsepower, ensuring that it can reach the 250 km/h (155 mph) shown on the teaser’s speedometer.
