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!

If you’ve been wondering if the Volkswagen Golf R400 that debuted at the New York International Auto Show would be making its way here to the states, your question has been answered. According to Dr Heinz-Jakon Neusser, Volkswagen group powertrain chief, the new R400 is a go.

The news was first broken by Car Magazine and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Neusser said, “We have the Golf more sporty than ever before, since we soon will have the Golf R400 – we will do this car. We are in fact in development of it right now.”

The hot, new hatch is said to be four-wheel drive and produce 400 hp. It’s also speculated that it will be debuting this fall at the Frankfurt Motor Show and then be available to customers as soon as early 2016.

We are really excited for the new Golf R400 to be making its way here and hope you are too! Stay tuned to our blog and we’ll let you know when the hatch makes its official debut.
