Volkswagen decided to mark the introduction of its 2015 Golf R model in the United States with a special launch edition. Limited to just 500 units, this launch edition can be pre-ordered starting January 8th and customers can secure their place in line by paying a $500 reservation fee. According to Volkswagen, the first 500 Golf R models will be identical and based on the topline Golf R with DCC & Nav as well as the six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Moreover, all the models will be painted in Lapiz Blue Metallic, will feature 19-inch Cadiz aluminum-alloy wheels wrapped in summer performance tires, Bi-Xenon headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights, the DCC adaptive damping system, Park Distance Control, a navigation system and the Fender Premium Audio System.

Each unit will start at $39,090 plus $820 destination and delivery charge. In addition, the first 500 owners will receive an exclusive, numbered Volkswagen Driver Gear R accessory kit, which includes a serialized VW R watch, a serialized carbon fiber and stainless steel keychain as well as a serialized and VIN-specific certificate.

For those who don’t know, each Golf R will use a 2.0-liter TSI petrol engine producing 292 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, 36 hp and 37 lb-ft more than its predecessor.

The engine pushes the vehicle from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.9 seconds, while top speed is 155 mph or 250 km/h. Despite these performances, the Golf R promises to return a fuel economy rating of 30 mpg on the highway.
