The Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S has the privilege of being the Golf’s current most powerful production: despite being a front-wheel drive, its 310 HP overcome by a dozen horses to the Volkswagen Golf R, with all-wheel-drive. However, the ‘R’ still has not said his last word, at least in Switzerland.
Volkswagen Golf R360S emerges as a special edition model, which will be marketed only in Switzerland, limited to 220 units in total: 165 correspond to the five-door, and the 55 remaining will be the Golf R Variant with bodywork family.
ABT Sportsline has decisively contributed in the creation of this version, and in fact in the Golf R360S there are a lot of tuning already built-in source. For example, the engine 2.0 TSI four-cylinder increases its performance up to the 360 HP and 460 Nm of torque, through a preparation of ABT. Recall that ABT offers up to 400 HP for the Golf R, so in this occasion have been a little more conservative.
The total traction is still present, as well as the possibility of choosing between the manual change of six marches or the DSG dual-clutch and seven relationships. Thanks to this increase of his power, the performance improves accordingly: the Volkswagen Golf R360S reaches 265 km/h, and needs only 4.7 seconds to accelerate to 100 km/h from a standing start.
The aesthetic changes are not too deep, but again they are aimed at equipping this version of a aesthetic tuning, but without excesses: highlight your alloy wheels in black, the logo ‘R360S’ on his tailgate, and an outside decoration of vinyl, with longitudinal bands in black that run through your hood and the bottom part of your side.
Already on sale in Switzerland, the 220 units of the Volkswagen Golf R360S will become not only more powerful, but also in one of the versions most exclusive in the current generation of the compact German. Your price will be 55,000 swiss francs, approximately 50,500 persons euros at the exchange.
