New Volkswagen Golf R400

It would seem, well, how Golf could become even cooler? Almost the best car that money can buy in Europe, the legendary Volkswagen model is acknowledged by everyone. Nevertheless, the German car manufacturer decided otherwise and is going to build a Golf that will leave no one indifferent: the production version of the 400 hp prototype, which debuted in April 2014 at the auto show in Beijing.

Moreover, representatives of Volkswagen say that it is not even about 400HP, and even more power. Authoritative British media claims about 420 horsepower, which will come from two-liter turbo engine.

The prototype accelerates from zero to sixty mph in 3.9 seconds. And this is not a joke. With such a car at the traffic lights you can humiliate not only the owners of hot hatches or very fast SUV, but also compete with Mercedes-AMG GT, which price is several times greater than the Golf.
