The very exclusive 3-door Golf R is limited to only 10 units in Malaysia, and is offered in Lapiz Blue.
The 3-door Golf R is priced at RM 268,888 (before registration).
Similar to its 5-door sibling, the 3-door Golf R comes with a new 2.0TSI turbocharged engine and a 7-speed wet clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG), giving an impressive output of 290PS and a torque of 380Nm between 2,000 to 5,400rpm transferred via 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.
The Golf R comes with the R ‘Vienna’ perforated leather seats, 19-inch Pretoria alloy wheels, 12.3-inch Active Info Display, 9.2-inch Discover Pro with App-Connect with Gesture Control, LED headlights with Dynamic Cornering Lights, LED taillights with Dynamic Indicators, and progressive steering.
However, the 3-door Golf R is not offered with KESSY keyless locking and engine starting system, exterior mirror memory function and power-adjustable driver seat.
Erik Winter, managing director of VPCM, said that the Golf R is one of the most desirable Volkswagen models of all time, and the availability of the 3-door Golf R should have fans excited.
“This truly is an opportunity for enthusiasts to be part of something special, as the 3-door Golf R is a rare beast here in Malaysia. With such a cult following, we are confident that all 10 units will be sold very quickly,“ he said.
The ultimate performance hatch, the Golf R has set and broken numerous track records around the world.
On the road and track, its appeal lies in the fact that it is one of the most well-rounded cars available in the market.
