      Interesting article on new Golf R. Apparantly VW wanted to put the 5 cylinder from the Audi RS into the Golf, but Audi said No!

      Too bad............That would have been the ultimate Golf R. I would have traded up, in a heartbeat!

      Makes sense Audi wants to keep the 5 cylinder for themselves, as the Golf would have been cheaper and faster.

      Maybe one day https://www.motor1.com/news/404973/vw-golf-5-cylinder-denied/amp/

      Yeah, I remember seeing those spy shots of the supposed golf r420 prototype on the Nurburgring with the rs3/ttrs big oval exhausts sometime in 2018 and getting excited.

      It makes complete business sense not to do that, but that would've been amazing.

      Well, guess that validates my purchase of my Mk7.5 R. If the Mk8 had come with the 5 cylinder and a 6MT I'd be pretty bummed.
