VW Concept Golf R400 Likely to Become a Reality
|   Sunday, November 16, 2014
Volkswagen's powerful Golf R400 will likely begin rolling off the automaker's assembly lines in 2017.

According to Britain's Car Magazine, the Volkswagen has crunched the numbers and has determined that it will be beneficial to the automaker's bottom line to add the 400-horsepower pocket rocket to its lineup.

At first, the R400 was to remain a concept car, after it was introduced at this year's Beijing Motor Show. However, VW reversed itself recently and gave the greenlight to to what will likely be known as the Golf GTI R400.


The powerplant on the R400 will likely be a turbocharged four that cranks out anywhere between 400 and 420 horsepower. The standard Golf powerplant puts out 170 horsepower, while the GTI's powerplant turns out 210 horsepower. The current Golf GTI R's engine cranks out 290 horsepower.

VW is being very conservative in the changes it plans for the R400 low key. According to the Car, the R400 will sport enhanced brakes and suspension enhancements. The enhancements are consistent with a huge increase in engine horsepower.
