Its 2.0L turbocharged engine produces 20 more than the previous model, delivering 320PS of power and 420Nm of torque. The only gearbox offered in the R, sadly, is a 7-speed DSG, and with this gearbox, not to mention the fact that it packs a new, performance-oriented all-wheel drive system, it does 0-100kph in 4.7 seconds and is electronically capped at 250kph.
Golf MK8 GTI Clubsport would be incredible because it is more refined and imo way better looking than the standard GTI. And you could get an opportunity to kinda drive it.
You know sadly it is only available on the european market.

Like the hatchback, the Golf R Variant is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0L petrol engine that produces 320PS of power and 420Nm of torque.

It also comes with a rear differential and joy of joys, torque vectoring that allows most to be transferred to the rear wheels.
