Volkswagen extends its range in Australia with the introduction of a new derivative based on the current Golf R. The special edition is called Volkswagen Wolsburg Edition Golf R and is available exclusively on the AUS market.
Wolfsburg is the home of Volkswagen’s global operations, and the iconic ”wolf and castle” emblem that adorns the Golf R and Golf R Wagon Wolfsburg Edition cars is a tribute to the ancestral roots of the Volkswagen brand.
Adding a higher specification over the standard Golf R hatch, the Golf R and Golf R Wagon Wolfsburg Edition models include a number of key distinguishing features.
Key specification include: choice of three exterior colours including the exclusive Oryx White Pearl, Carbon Nappa leather appointed upholstery with individually heated front seats, Black Pretoria 19” alloy wheels, black door mirror covers, black roof rails (on the Wagon version), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Front Assist with City Emergency Brake (City EB), Proactive occupant protection system, Blind Spot Monitor with rear traffic alert and the already mentioned Wolfsburg crest badge.
The only option available is a panoramic electric glass sunroof, at $1,850.
The equipment package adds a retail price premium of $1,750 to the Golf R series model, arriving at a recommended retail price of $56,990. At $58,990, the Golf R Wagon Wolfsburg Edition carries a $2,000 wagon premium.
Both of the limited-run models will feature the performance credentials of the Golf R’s 300 hp TSI engine and 4Motion all-wheel-drive.
