Recently spotted testing at the Nurburgring the 2021 (?) Mk8 Golf R. Rumoured specs are 245kW and 420Nm from the EA888 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four and 0-100km/hr in 4.6sec. Photo credit motoring.com.au https://www.motoring.com.au/spy-pics-volkswagen-golf-r-at-the-ring-123836/
Due here later this year, probably late rather than mid. Around $50k for the 180kw (same as the current 7.5) base model and a new Clubsport version with 213kw (like a current R) for who knows what $. Still not sure about the exterior especially the front but I'm warming to the interior. 5 doors only. Mk7.5 TCR is also due this year at around $60k. Mk8 R not due here until 2021. Fun times at Volkswagen. As usual due to our crappy fuel we'll continue to miss out on the more advanced engines.
