Volkswagen Golf R 400 Spied Testing for the First Time

We would be so happy to carry a Golf R 400 at Sierra Volkswagen, and all signs point toward that happening.

The concept was first unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show in 2014. After that, we were told it would definitely come to the United States if it was ever cleared for production. Then we were told that it had been cleared for production, but details were still a bit murky.

This time, though, we’re even more certain it’ll happen, partly because the Volkswagen Golf R 400 has been spied in testing. At least it looks like the Golf R 400. This one has bigger brakes, different wheels, very low-profile tires, a front lip spoiler, and a rear wing reminiscent of the GTI Clubsport, but we’re not sure what else it could be.

Either way, we’re highly anticipating this one, especially since it’s supposed to come with four-wheel-drive and more than 400 brake horsepower. Stay tuned for the latest news!

VW Possibly Bringing Volkswagen Golf R 400 to U.S. Market

Volkswagen Golf R 400

When Volkswagen first revealed the Volkswagen Golf R 400 last year at the Beijing Auto Show, the industry couldn’t help but get a bit excited. Now, it looks like it’s possible that this high-power Golf hatchback might be coming to American soil—if Volkswagen decides to give it the production green light.

According to Dr. Heinz-Jakob Neusser, member of the VW board of management, the U.S. market is the perfect platform to introduce this sporty new hatchback. With the original Golf earning both Motor Trend Car of the Year and North American Car of the Year, it’s likely that the American market will respond well to a new edition of the hatchback.

The Volkswagen Golf R 400 combines the Golf’s sporty exterior with an even sportier powertrain, making it significantly more fun-to-drive. Now, it’s just a matter of whether or not the German carmaker will produce this super sporty hatch.
