A couple of months ago, Volkswagen confirmed that Golf R will be coming to the United States. We happened to come across the new Golf R at the Volkswagen stand at the 2011 New York Auto Show and took some pictures of it for you guys.
Known as “the most powerful Volkswagen sports performance vehicle ever built.” The performance halo vehicle will be coming to the United States in 2012 at the request of many V-dub enthusiasts.
The Golf R display in New York is a U.S.-spec model with the steering on the right.
