In the world of super-fast wagons, the VW Golf R isn’t exactly at the top of the food chain. Having said that, it’s by no means unspectacular.
Of course, whenever we’re talking fast cars, we’re inevitably also discussing loud cars, since the two narratives go hand in hand. So here’s a pretty darn loud Golf R Wagon for your viewing pleasure.
Thanks to the Remus stainless steel racing cat-back system, the car boasts an extra 10.8 horses sprinkled with an additional 10.9 Nm (8 lb-ft) of torque. It’s also lighter by 5.3 kg (11.7 lbs), which isn’t much, but together with the power and torque bump, it’s certainly worth mentioning.
