Volkswagen Motorsport is developing its first racing car based on the seventh-generation Golf.
The production-based concept car is assembled in accordance with Touringcar Racer (TCR) regulations and is intended to help Volkswagen evaluate a potential customer racing programme from the 2016 season onwards.
Under the bonnet, you will find a powerful four-cylinder engine, DSG gearbox with shift paddles mounted on the steering wheel, and a consistently developed racing chassis.
The 2.0-litre turbo engine with direct fuel injection comes from the top sporting model, the Golf R. The racing version of this engine generates 325bhp and 302lb/ft of torque.
