Watch: Volkswagen Produces Spy Thriller to Welcome Golf R

We got to see the Golf R for the first time last night and to make sure we were appropriately excited, they produced a spy thriller to introduce the new model.

The video was also intended to welcome Volkswagen R into the world. The new sub brand kind of operates like Audi Sport, handling the highest-performance versions of VW’s cars.

Indeed, the video features the Touareg R, the T-Roc R, the Arteon R, the Tiguan R, and the Touareg R. Although each model will be available in Europe, just which, if any, make it to America remains to be seen.

Volkswagen USA’s Senior VP of Product, Hein Schafer, told us that a version of the Tiguan R is possible for the US, but not guaranteed. The Arteon R, meanwhile, is not supposed to make it to America.

We may, then, have to satisfy ourselves with the Golf R, which doesn’t sound too bad. It makes 315 hp, 310 lb-ft of torque, sits 0.8 inches lower than the standard Golf 8 and will get torque vectoring all the better to hold the corners with.

Expect it to arrive late next year.
