2010 Volkswagen Golf R

The potent ever Volkswagen has made its worldwide debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. no longer powered by the sonorous V6 engine of the first and second R models, power from the new TSI mill produces 199 kW and 350 Nm making the most powerful Golf

Equipped with Volkswagen’s DSG dual-clutch transmission, the Golf R can from rest to 100 km/h in 5.5 (6.2 s for the R32) or 5.7 seconds for the version.

Unlike the Scirocco R. the R receives Volkswagen’s upgraded all-wheel drive system. to the version implemented in the Golf the system underwent significant development. Above all, transmission between the front and axles – especially the differential that operates in an oil – exhibits clear compared to the previous generation.

The important one: Activation of the differential no longer requires a in speeds between the front and axles.

Seen here in the R hue of pearlescent blue, the Golf R some unique styling to make it stand out further your run-of-the-mill Golfs intakes painted in high-gloss and standard LED daytime running integrated in the two outer air intakes. The receive distinctive LED technology for the time ever while the covers are also smoked.

The R can be ordered in Germany starting at the end of year so hopefully we should it in by this time next

Wolfsburg / Frankfurt, 15 September – Automotive passion – even in it still has something to do with and performance. At the IAA, however, is demonstrating – in the world premiere of the new R – that fuel consumption can even be corrected downward in the sports car area. And indeed even a hint of a compromise in performance.

On the contrary. Traditionally new R version of this model bears the title “strongest of all times.” With a power of 199 kW / 270 PS (at rpm), the new Golf R is continuing in dynamic tradition; the previous transferred 184 kW / 250 PS to its all-wheel drive

The highlight here: While the now Golf R32 processed 10.7 of fuel through its fuel system every 100 kilometres, on the new R the figure is just 8.5 litres – 2.2 or 21 percent less! CO2 emissions reduced from 255 to 199 g/km. all R models, this one was also by Volkswagen Individual.

In parallel, its data advanced as well. The new R sprints from 0 to 100 km/h – via all-wheel drive – in 5.7 seconds. On the model, the stopwatch stopped at 6.5 The new model puts the 1,000-meter behind it in 25.4 seconds, the already masterful Golf R32 past this mark in seconds.

The Golf R does even better with the DSG gearbox, sprinting to 100 km/h in a 5.5 seconds and requiring just 8.4 petrol per 100 kilometres (equivalent to 195 CO2) at the fuel pump.

The efficiency gain of the new Golf R is not on some magical trick, it is the result of highly advanced Its legendary predecessor generated its from a displacement of 3.2 litres and six cylinders. In the new model, this is with four cylinders and 2.0 of displacement – a highly advanced injection petrol engine turbocharging (TSI).

At the fuel pump and on the winding road, this high-tech is superior to a classic six cylinder with multi-point injection. that even the sound of a cylinder can leave a strong are the fifth and sixth generations of the GTI, which is also by a four cylinder TSI. And the R exhibits an even greater range.”

The TSI’s torque is just as impressive. By comparison: The six of the previous model developed a torque of 320 Newton-meters at 2,500 And that was already remarkably The turbo four-cylinder direct engine of the new Golf R, on the other transfers 350 Newton-meters torque to the which is also available at 2,500 rpm, but it can maintain peak value up to 5,000

So the new car delivers a fascinatingly high of basic dynamic performance. The R32 and Golf R are really only in one discipline; they both a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically on the Golf R).

TSI of the Golf R

The EA113 direct-injection petrol engine is in the new Golf R; its turbocharger makes it flexible and variable right up the highest performance ranges. The cm3 TSI’s specific power is a 100.3 kW / 136.6 PS per litre and its response is just as impressive. The power can be spontaneously summoned in the of an eye throughout its speed range. The also impressively underscores its acoustically.

Visually too: Its two tailpipes can be seen at the centre of the under the diffuser integrated – an “R trait” that the previous also displayed.

The in-line engine develops its tremendous power via a turbocharger (up to 1.2 bar boost with intercooling. The engine, a weight of just 152 kilograms, is by a fully electronic engine system with E-Gas. The of the four-cylinder engine have equipped with reinforcing unlike less powerful TSI

Also designed to be stronger are the rods, so that they can transfer the engine’s high to the crankshaft. Last but not least the block was also reinforced to the aggressive engine forces.

New drive on the Golf R

As standard the Golf R transfers the TSI’s to the road via the latest generation of 4Motion all-wheel drive Compared to the version implemented in the R32, the system underwent advanced development. Above power transmission between the and rear axles – especially the differential that operates in an oil – exhibits clear advances to the previous generation.

The most one: Activation of the all-wheel no longer requires a difference in between the front and rear

That is because, different on the previous generation, for the first an electric pump is used to pressure. The electric pump oil to a hydraulic reservoir whose pressure is 30 bar. A control computes the ideal drive for the rear axle and controls, via a how much oil pressure is applied to the pistons of the multi-plate clutch. The pressure at the clutch plates in proportion to the desired torque at the axle.

The amount of torque is transferred can be varied continuously the magnitude of the pressure applied to the plates. Compared to the previous generation, the system operates of slip, since the system’s pressure is always available. starting up and accelerating, this spinning of the wheels at the front more effectively, since the module regulates the torque based on dynamic axle

In extreme cases, nearly 100 of the drive torque can be directed to the axle. This results in gains in active safety and performance.

Sport chassis and on the Golf R

When it came to the development engineers were to adopt the first-class system in the production Golf. This In front the familiar McPherson suspension with helical and telescoping shock absorbers; and at the a multi-link suspension ensures the standard ESP seldom needs to Nonetheless, the basic layout was into a sport chassis ride-height lowered 25 millimetres, and the dampers and stabilisers were retuned to match.

The brake system was also for the higher level of driving on the Golf R. In place of a 16-inch a 17-inch brake system is with internally ventilated all around and R-specific brake painted a high-gloss black R logo. In front the discs are 345 in diameter, and 310 millimetres at the rear. The stabilisation program (ESP) was modified.

It can be switched to a new Sport via the ESP button. During very and curve-filled drives – as on a motorsport course – the ESP system delays enabling even more handling properties. The electro-mechanical steering of the Golf R was also a sportier characteristic.

If the sports car is with the optional DCC dynamic control option, the power-assist even assumes a specially characteristic for each of the system’s modes (Sport, Normal,

The chassis maintains contact the road through its standard designed 18-inch alloy (“Talladega” type) with tyres. As an option, the same are available in a 19-inch version 235/35 tyres.

Exterior of the Golf R

Like the first two of the Super Golf (I starting in II in 2005) and the new sister model, the R, the new Golf R too sports a completely set of exterior and interior features. designers, led by Klaus Bischoff, given the Golf R an independent with a bundle of well-coordinated The Golf R unmistakably marks the of the model series, and the quality of its follows the basic postulate of “La set forth by the Head of Group Walter de Silva.

Outside, the customisation includes new and brakes as well as new bumper In front, three very air intakes characterise the Golf R in the area; the louvres on the intakes are in high-gloss black, and standard LED that serves as daytime lights are integrated in the two outer air Also painted in high-gloss are the two louvres of the radiator grille.

on the right side of the grille is the designed R logo in chrome. headlights, included without illuminate the way through the night. On its the Golf R is identified by its Talladega side skirt extensions in car and mirror housings painted in black.

It is also possible to the Golf R as an independent top model at the Along with the bumper diffuser and tailpipes, R logo and roof edge spoiler, the developed taillights stand They operate with distinctive LED technology.

The taillight are also smoked.

Interior of the Golf R

The sixth generation with its high-end interior breaks through boundaries to the higher class. The Golf R benefits from this image; it is in a league of its own based on its reserves. Additional special developed by Volkswagen Individual the car’s high-class positioning.

A key option here is the newly “Top Sport seat with its excellent ergonomic The driver just sits adjusts the seat longitudinally and in adjusts the steering wheel, up, and is ready to go. The seat fits as tailor-made. Together with the customised Golf GTI and Golf the Golf R sets standards among the international competition.

The panels of the sport seats are in the honeycomb textured grey-black design – named after the course by the same name in Africa. The front edge of the is upholstered in Titan Black while the inside panels of the supports are upholstered with “San Remo” micro-fibres. The of the seat components and the roofliner are black.

The new R logo is embroidered in the front restraints as well. Motorsport seats for driver and front are also available as an option. In case, the centre seat are upholstered in the “San Remo” fabric.

On the outside, the shell are covered with black

All seams of the interior are in “Art this is also true of the seams on the three-spoke leather wheel. Perforated leather is at the top and bottom of the steering wheel, maximum hand grip. The of the steering wheel featuring motorsport attributes are covered by leather. Spokes in fine piano paint add an elegant to complete the sporty image. The steering wheel spoke the new R logo.
