Volkswagen Golf R Performance Pack
Volkswagen have made the Volkswagen Golf R even faster with a performance pack offering bigger breaks, larger alloys and more speed.
Volkswagen have now made a Performance Pack option available for their already high performing Volkswagen Golf R model. The £2,300 option removes the speed limiter that is found in the standard model enabling a top speed of 166mph in the hatchback and 168mph in the estate.
The pack also offers larger ‘R-Peformance’ breaks, that reduce the overall weight of the braking system by 2kg. They are also optimised for track days with optimisation including cast steel friction ring and aluminium brake pots made to ensure greater durability. From an aesthetic point of view silver callipers are used highlighting the new brakes to onlookers.
The standard 18 inch Cadiz alloys are also replaced with elegant Spielberg 19 inch alloys, whilst the rear of the hatchback variants benefit from an extra rear wing that produces 20kg of genuine downforce. All of this makes an impressive vehicle even greater, with 306bhp and a 0-62mph time of only 4.2 seconds.
The Volkswagen Golf R is available to lease from Fulton Vehicle Leasing, along with the remainder of the manufacturers line up.
