Volkswagen has announced plans to introduce a new Golf R 400 Concept at the Beijing Motor Show.
The Golf R 400 concept will apparently debut as a more powerful version of the Golf R hatchback which is currently available from R486 200.
The concept is powered by the same 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder engine found in the hatchback GTI and R, but delivers 74 kW more power and 70 Nm of torque. That’s up from 221 kW to 295 kW and 380 Nm to 450 Nm. With this setup, the company promises the concept will travel from 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds, which is faster than the production model’s 5.0 seconds.
Volkswagen has also added to the concept, wider wheels, a wider track and a widened body. The concept also features revised front and rear bumpers, 19-inch wheels, and the teaser image suggests the model will also feature a green stripe through the headlights, while the grille will replace the chrome garnish found on the Golf R.
The cabin is said to feature race seats covered in quilted Alcantara while the regular rear bench will be replaced with a pair of individual seats.
More information and details on production will be made available once the Volkswagen Golf R 400 concept debuts in Beijing next week.
