VW Golf R with 270HP and AWD: New Photo Gallery from International Driving Presentation

Unveiled to the public for the first time at last year's Frankfurt motor show, the Golf R comes with a 270HP 2.0-liter turbo engine and all-wheel drive and is the most powerful and fastest series production Golf ever made. We've already shared with you all the basic details on the new 'R', but today, VW released some new photos of the car shot during the international driving presentation in Ellmau, Austria.

The hottest Golf leaves the 100km/h (62mph) mark behind it in 5.7 seconds when equipped with a manual gearbox, and 5.5 seconds when shifted with VW's optional DSG dual clutch transmission. In both cases top speed is limited to 250km/h or 155 mph. Photo gallery after the break.
