What we couldn't confirm is whether or not VW will upgrade the Golf R with a four-wheel drive system or if the company will keep the GTI's front-wheel drive setup as is the case of the Scirocco R (pictured below).
The Golf for power junkies will get a new bodykit similar in design to the one featured on the top-of-the-line Scirocco along with twin central exhausts, a set of beefier five-spoke alloys and darkened headlamps and tail lights. The R will be offered in three- and five-door bodystyles.
We'll be bringing you more 'inside' news from the Frankfurt Show this week so stay tuned...
