Golf-R-performance-pack-to-come-to-UKVolkswagen has previewed a clip on its Youtube channel showing a Golf R performance package that the brand is considering for a launch in the UK.

The clip shows a Golf R sporting an Akrapovic exhaust plus suspension alterations, as well as a faster top speed and performance brake option.

Volkswagen UK has stated that it is an optional package and will soon be released across Europe, with the possibility of bringing it to the UK.

Accompanying the video is a short description, saying the Performance kit makes the Golf R “even rawer, even less compromising and even more strong-willed”.

The clip indicates a top speed of 166 mph which is higher than the current Golf R’s electronically limited 155 mph top speed. The upgraded brakes have drilled disks and upgraded pads. There’s also a shock absorber adjustment which can offer varying ride height settings. The pack also includes the front air curtains of the Golf GTI Clubsport.

At the Geneva motor show, Volkswagen had a Golf R on its stand with an Akrapovič exhaust and Pirelli Trofeo R tyres from the Lamborghini Huracán Performante.

There’s no suggestion that there is a power boost as part of the upgrades, so it will still use the same 310bhp turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine, which has a 0-62mph time of 4.6sec and works in conjunction with an all-wheel drive system.
