The #Volkswagen #GolfR is a very accomplished car, and arguably the best all-rounder in the hot-hatch class. Sure some rivals are faster, more exciting and perhaps more engaging, but the R delivers enough ability to compete in all those areas, and brings plenty more abilities to the party besides. But make no mistake, this facelifted version is an excellent car that you’ll absolutely love. As before, propulsion comes courtesy of a 2.0-litre TSI motor sending power to all four wheels via a 7-speed DSG gearbox, but now puts out 213kw/380nm. But how quick is the R647 300 Golf R? For starters, at the reef the 1.4 ton hot hatch does 0-100kph in just 4.95 secs. The 1/4 mile takes 13.26 secs at a speed of 172.88kph, while it completes the 1km sprint in 24.06 secs at 219.25kph, eventually running to an electronically limited top speed of 258.73kph in 6th. Very rapid indeed! #TunedAutomotive #SomeShitAboutCars
