Ushering in two decades since the R32, Volkswagen has unveiled the Golf R “20 Years” edition, the first Golf vehicle to boast the “R” racing badge. Packed with R-style equipment, the car comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that produces 328 hp (245 kW), a jump compared to the output of the standard Golf.

The engine, which drives all four wheels, has been revamped with turbocharger preloading, enabling the power to develop faster when accelerating. According to Volkswagen, this special model sprints from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 kph) in only 4.6 seconds.

In terms of styling, the Golf R “20 Years” features a distinct “20” badge, as well as the “R” marker. Blue design accents add a pop of brightness, and buyers can opt for wheel rims in either blue or black depending on the vehicle’s exterior color. This model is outfitted with a roof spoiler and VW’s Estoril wheels.

The Golf R “20 Years” also contains new features in its interior. Decorative genuine carbon trims add to its highlight the visual quality of the performance vehicle, while its sport seats are rigged out in Nappa leather and embroidered with blue “R” logos.

VW says the first Golf R “20 Years” editions will arrive in showrooms by the middle of 2022, meaning soon, and is expected to run until sometime in mid-2023.
