1. Volkswagen Golf R
The Volkswagen Golf R is the high powered version of the standard Golf. The turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 16 valve 4-cylinder engine puts out 292 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. With a zero to sixty time of 4.5 seconds and a zero to 155 mph time of 29.5 seconds, the Golf R is a quick little beast. The transmission is a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic that can be manually shifted. To get the full experience of the power the Volkswagen Golf R is capable of, it’s best to manually shift the transmission, as the automatic gearbox seems to lag when trying to select the correct gear for the situation. The Golf R has an upgraded suspension as well, giving it better stability and responsiveness when driving it like a race car.
