At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen will reveal a new performance division called R GmbH. The new division will feature expanded high-performance versions of Volkswagen’s current lineup.
“BMW has its M, Mercedes has AMG, and our sibling Audi has Quattro,” a Volkswagen executive told Inside Line. “This new R division will be our Quattro.”
Currently, the North American market features bits and pieces of R-Line offerings through the Volkswagen GearStore. The German automaker has not yet confirmed whether it will introduce the R GmbH division in the U.S. market.
The latest creation from Volkswagen R division includes the new Golf R and Scirocco R. A version of the Golf R is rumored to be coming to North America in early 2011.
