Golf R 400 Concept to display at Goodwood FOS


JonSpriggs

Announced in a press release today, Volkswagen has confirmed that the Golf R 400 Concept will be on show at this months Goodwood Festival of Speed.

 

We quote... "Based on the standard Golf R hatchback, the R 400 concept ups the ante considerably, with 400PS and 450 Nm of torque - plus looks to match the performance."

 

This is great news for R enthusiasts as it shows Volkswagens further commitment to developing the model, and gaining increased public awareness in what will be the fastest production Golf to ever roll out of Wolfsburg.

 

The Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place on the 26th, 27th and 28th of June, and the Volkswagen UK débutantes also include the Sport Coupe GTE Concept, the XL Sport as well as the 2015 Polo R WRC rally car.

 

Of course the latter isn't a concept, but a very real car that has already seen action across the globe in the World Rally Championship...

 

What's the betting though that there will only be one car being talked about.

 

So, 14 days and counting.

I'd imagine it will be static only, and I can't see why it wouldn't be there on all three days.
