Volkswagen Golf R 5dr DSG Performance Pack

Volkswagen Golf R 5dr DSG Performance Pack


The Golf R is a rare breed of car – looks great, high quality, great specification, silly fast, usable in all weather and practical (much like the RS4 Avant). But given that it’s Volkswagen, they had to tone it down a little on certain fronts to please everyone, so the exhaust isn’t particularly noisy compared to some rivals and the brakes can fade a bit in hard use. But thankfully VW hasn’t forgotten the pure petrolheads and has now released the Golf R Performance Pack. There’s no more power – 307bhp is more than enough in their hot hatch, but the new pack comes with larger 19-inch alloy wheels, behind which sit an ‘R-Performance’ braking system with larger, high performance discs that save 2kg. There’s a larger roof spoiler too and the speed limiter is removed so instead of 155mph it tops out at 166mph. to add to the aural excitement there’s also a new titanium exhaust system by Slovenian exhaust specialist Akrapovič. This has a larger diameter pipework, round tailpipes with carbon trim and saves 7kg over the standard system. Oh, and it also sounds incredible. For this special prize, we’ve added the Performance Pack to the 5dr Golf R with the DSG gearbox too, so you really have got the absolute best Golf you can buy from the factory.
