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.

Helping the VW Golf R stand out from a typical Golf are number of design tweaks like the new bumper design with significantly large air inlets as well as a modified radiator grille with the "R" logo. In addition, the Golf R features new daytime running lights – employing LED technology -- integrated into the housings of the bi-xenon headlights. The vehicle’s DRLs form a dual "U" design just below the dual headlights.

Distinguishing features on the sides of the new Golf R include "Matt chrome" door mirror caps, side sill panels in "R" style finished in body color as well as "R" badges on the front wings. The flanks are also defined by newly designed 18-inch "Cadiz" alloy wheels -- optional 19-inch alloy wheels are also available -- wrapped in 225/40 tires and black brake calipers with "R" logo. VW is also making available 19-inch "Pretoria" wheels as "flow-forming" wheels in motorsport design.

Meanwhile, the rear end of the VW Golf R is marked by smoked LED rear lights with a light-colored stripe in the middle as well as a diffuser in "R" design. The rear end also features an "R" logo on the boot lid and four chrome tailpipes.

On the other hand, the new Golf R could be finished in any of the eight available exterior colors, like the newly developed and exclusive Lapis Blue Metallic finish. Other available exterior colors include Deep Black Pearl Effect, Limestone Grey Metallic, Night Blue, Oryx White, Pure White Reflex Silver Metallic and Tornado Red.
