[Update: The 2014 Vw Golf R 7 (VII) has just made its debut, read all about it here] - We’ve just hung up the phone with our source specialized in Volkswagen cars and found out some news about the 2014 Golf 7 R. Apparently, the 4WD hatch will make its debut this autumn at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and will carry under its hood a 2.0-liter TFSI engine delivering 300 hp and 380 Nm of torque.
With these numbers, the Golf 7 R will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds and will have a top speed of 250 km/h or 155 mph.
The 2014 Golf R will be a little quicker than the Audi S3, which is able to zoom from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.1 seconds when using the S tronic (5.4 when using the manual transmission). Regarding the price, Volkswagen will offer the 2014 Golf 7 R at around 40,000 euros. Deliveries are set to start in early 2014.
