This is a 395bhp VW Golf – Only 4 Cylinders?

395 vw golf

You think the Golf with it’s 4 cylinder engines are a little boring? Well here’s the Golf R400. This is what Top Gear have to say

We thought that the new sub-five-second-to-sixty Golf R, with its 296bhp, was getting close to the limits of a turbo 2.0-litre four cylinder.

Officially the R400 is a concept for now, but VW explicitly states that its bonkers output is ‘plausible’ – which is industry-speak for ‘a done deal’.

We’ll see R400 in non-sketch form this weekend. So, hot hatch fans: put on some oven gloves, as hot hatches could soon be getting a whole lot hotter. Excited?
