Volkswagen news - ‘R we there yet?’ - 201

A gambling
man would never have put money on this. In the vein of BMW’s M Sport and AMG
over at Mercedes, Volkswagen has just announced that it is creating a special division
to handle its new performance models.

‘Volkswagen
R GmbH’ gets new ‘R’ headquarters in Wolfsburg and even 350 ‘R’ workers all of
its very own. Trouble is, we’re not quite sure what they’re going to find to
 do.

They’ve already made the Golf and Scirocco R after all, so what on earth
next? Seven-seat Touran R? Urban Fox R? With the Polo GTI yet to be launched we
can only imagine they’re fiddling with a Passat at the moment. Or twiddling
their ‘R’ thumbs.
