[YesAuto News] Known as the “fastest golf ever”-the Golf R32 debuted at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show. Volkswagen recently announced that the Golf R32 will be unveiled at this year's Chicago Auto Show and will consider launching it in the North American market!
The Golf R32 is a powerful car from the GTI family. After some transformation, it is presented to the world with a new look. It is brand new, but the appearance is just a very simple operation: multi-spoke wheels, 18-inch tires, wider air intakes, a pair of huge exhaust pipes in the center of the tail, etc. have been added. However, it is precisely such a small change that brings a more “fierce” feeling.
In Europe, the Golf R32 is equipped with a 3.2-liter V6 engine that reaches a maximum power of 247 horsepower at 6300 rpm, and can continuously output a peak torque of 321Nm between 2800 and 3200 rpm. Using the Haldex clutch in the four-wheel drive system, the power can be transmitted to each wheel smoothly. The R32 with DSG semi-automatic gearbox takes only 6.2 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h, while the 6-speed manual requires 6.5 seconds, and the top speed is limited to 250km/h, which is extremely powerful.
The interior of the Golf R32 looks more beautiful, and the seat feels very comfortable. In addition to the first-class atmosphere, the workmanship and practicality of the car are unmatched. And equipped with a series of safety equipment, such as electronic stability program ESP, anti-lock braking ABS, brake assist and electronic braking force distribution and so on.
At present, the Golf GTI has been launched in China, and with the upcoming launch of the Golf R32 in North America, it is believed that domestic consumers are also coveting it. Unfortunately, Volkswagen has no plans to introduce the Golf R32 into the country.
