We’re huge fans of the GTI at Pfaff Volkswagen. But the Golf R – which is coming later this year – takes things to a whole new level.

The 2016 Golf R is unlike any Golf you’ve seen before. It’s the only model in the entire Volkswagen fleet that can boast 292 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of serious torque, all housed on the new, stronger and lighter MQB platform. Fully loaded with premium features and distinctive “R” accents, this hot hatch will make you a believer.

In this video, three of the Hendrik Muth, Gordon Koch and Arne Ressl describe the development of this all-wheel drive pocket rocket. We can’t wait to drive it!
