The new Golf 8 went on sale back in June and so far we’;eve seen the new GTI, GTI Clubsport, GTE and the GTD – but, the flagship Golf R has been missing up until now, VW teased the image above yesterday with an announcement date of tomorrow, 4th November.

The Golf R has always been a more serious car than its GTI relative, with more power, planted four wheel drive and it usually comes in an estate flavour. There have been some spy shots which Autocar have got hold of recently with larger wheels, blue brake callipers as well as a fairly noticeable spoiler on the rear.

Power is expected to be 329bhp, which is 33bhp more than the outgoing Golf R. Volkswagen are due to announce the new car sometime tomorow, so stay tuned to A&T Tech for the latest.
