Top Speed – 155 mph
Zero to Sixty – 4.5 seconds

The Volkswagen Golf R is the Volkswagen company’s high end sports car. 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 Volkswagen Golf R earns it’s place among the fastest 4-cylinder cars. 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.
