Limited Edition Golf R 333 – Key Features
The decision to limit the edition to 333 vehicles stemmed from the engine’s power output of 245 kW (333 PS). Moreover, making it the most powerful Golf variant to date, with a torque of 420 newton meters. Enhanced engine tuning ensures incredibly responsive load change reactions. The turbocharger remains preloaded at a constant speed during partial-load driving, enabling rapid power development for subsequent acceleration. Moreover, the open throttle valve during overrun phases improves dynamics and on-road performance. By optimizing the engine torque buildup, when the driver releases and re-applies the accelerator, the engine responds more quickly. With an acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds, the Golf R 333 Limited Edition sets a new benchmark in its class compared to its key competitors.

This Golf R offers a combination that is unprecedented.” Furthermore, this Volkswagen R model marks the first time a strict limitation of 333 units has been imposed.
