A very psychedelic Volkswagen Golf R, Spotted in China at the Volkswagen China headquarters in the Sanlitun area in Beijing. The good Volkswagen was wrapped in a wrap that made me wonder where and what I was. The wrap changed color while I was looking at it, going from purple to gray and back.
And there it goes again! A brilliant piece of wrapping, definitely art. Except for the wippy wrap the Golf R was further sexed up by matte black door handles, tinted windows, and racy 5-spoke alloys.
The Volkswagen Golf R was imported into China, unlike the GTI which is locally produced. When new price started at a hefty 350.000 yuan. But power! The Golf R goes like stink thanks to a 2.0 turbo with 270hp and 350nm, top speed is 270km/h and 0-100 is gone in 5.5 seconds. The new Golf 7 R will be even faster, it will hit the China car market in April next year.
She is doing it again! Compare area around the fuel cap with previous pic. This car is beautifully confusing… For the racing minds, see this post for a different R.
