2009 Volkswagen R32 not coming to the U.S.

The 2009 Volkswagen Golf, or better known as Rabbit on the stateside, will be headed to the U.S. in spring 2009 followed by the 207-hp 2010 Golf GTI. Unfortunately, according to Thomas Wegehaupt, spokesman for Volkswagen, the U.S. will not get a 2009/2010 version of the R32.

Yes that means no 250 horsepower V6 all-wheel-drive for all you R32 fans. Nonetheless, it’s been less than a year since the redesigned R32 has been on sale. High-performance V-dub will have to make do with 276 R32 units spread across the U.S.

Prices start at $32,990 with a maximum 2,000 cash back until Oct. 31st. If your patient, U.S. is expected to get a limited edition of the new 2009 Volkswagen Scirocco that will have more power.
