Can you believe it’s already been two decades since the Golf R debuted? The sports-tuned hot hatch has provided many drivers with adrenaline-pumping experiences on winding roads — including here in Memphis, Tennessee.
To celebrate the anniversary of the car’s R version, Volkswagen has announced the Golf R “20 Years” edition. This special version is a must-have for VW fans and collectors, as it’s limited production this year will make it hard to obtain after it’s released to the public.
The normal Volkswagen R-branded model hatchback will carry special 20-year design details within the R Performance package. For instance, special anniversary stamping, larger wheels, and an emphasized roof spoiler enhance its appearance. Plus, the Golf R “20 Years” bears Genuine Carbon on the dashboard and doors, which is a first for any mass-produced VW car.
Of course, what fans care most about is the car’s performance. The special edition Golf R can launch from 0-60 mph in around 4.6 seconds, reaching a blistering-fast top speed of 167 mph thanks to its paddle-operated, turbocharged engine and gearbox.
The Golf R “20 Years” will soon be released in Europe and select U.S. dealerships. The best way to ensure you get one is to pre-order the Golf R “20 Years” through Gossett Volkswagen Porsche. Contact our car dealership in Memphis for more details.
