We have more Golf 7 R spy photos...
FULL STORY AND PHOTOS
Does this mean we can now get dual center exhaust in the GTI.
Even with the tires completely filling the wheel wells the car still has too much ground clearance. I think large diameter tires will look odd on this platform.
I am a VW Fan, but above all I am a Car Fan.
The way this Golf R (Mk7) is being made now (Standard Model), I'm a little nervous that we won't get this car in the states. Unless it's confirmed that it will be made locally somewhere near the US as well. (I saw that the Golf may be made in Mexico or TN potentially.)
I would be curious what Jamie's thoughts are on this considering that this is such a niche vehicle. Don't get me wrong, I would love it if more were on the road. (I've only seen 1 Golf R Mk6)
I just hope VWoA is going to want this car in the US lineup.
P.S. I would gladly pay more if it had more power than 280hp. (Golf RS just once please?) I expect the US will get the detune 265-270hp since we have terrible gas ratings here.
If the motor isn't more HP, I guess it will be time to pay some tuners. Maybe VW can work with APR on some factory tuning options or something.
How cool would it be if the put the fog lights behind the lower grills on the GTI?
Not too excited about it. Then again I haven't loved the looks of any US available since the limited edition MKIV Jetta GLi. I just wish they would go more aggressive and do more so it truly looked like a different model. I couldn't tell you if I have even seen a Golf R at this point on the road.
Oh well in the end as long as it has DSG as an option I will be in the market assuming it is only 2 years away.
The rear on that looks so fake, the exhaust is just plain weird

I parted with my MKVI MT GTI in January partially due to the 52 & 1/2" 7-year-old son...but MOSTLY due to the fact that my wife was unable to drive a manual transmission. My job now requires me to be out of town once a month for a week, so the Routan sits at the airport and she drives the DSG-equipped Passat 3.6...
The Passat has served its purpose....BUT with the news that the MKVII is now a wee bit longer, I'll be back to my old childish ways!! The mature saloon will have to go!! ....and my wife will have to get used to driving her own car.....all the time!! I enjoy D.R.I.V.I.N.G. waaaaaaaay too much.
Now... how to get VW to make mine MY way: Tornado Red, 4-door, manual transmission, cloth, Dynaudio, Bi-Xenons (the "R" part is unnecessary)
