Volkswagen Golf R20 with 270hp Reportedly Heading Stateside

Post by Rabbit106 on Tue Feb 03, 2009 4:26 pm

With the Volkswagen
R32 only boasting 250 horsepower, it seems the company's hot hatch is
starting to cool off in light of newer offering by competitors but VW
will soon rectify the situation by bringing the Golf R20 to the United
Unlike today's R32, the new R20 will feature Volkswagen's 2.0-liter
turbocharged engine with direct injection which will be tuned to
produce 270 horsepower. This should enable the R20 to post a 0-60 mph
time in the low to mid five second range and reach an electronically
limited top speed of 155 mph.
The exterior will carry over many of the new GTI's styling traits
but should also include more aggressive front and rear ends and a
center mounted dual exhaust. Initially the R20 will be offered only in
three-door hatchback form but a five-door model could eventually be
offered down the road.
Volkswagen will officially debut the new Golf R20 on May 21 at the
ADAC 24-hour race at Germany's Nürburgring racing circuit and European
sales will start later this year
