New Volkswagen Golf R spied testing in the Alps

The new seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf R has been caught again – this time testing in the Alps. We saw the Golf R prototype with the same camouflage back in April testing on the Nürburgring, but these new close up shots do give a better view of the disguised bumper with huge air intakes.

The rear shows four exhausts – two on each side.

What everyone really wants to know is the power unit. Details are limited, but different reports are talking abouta new 2.0-litre turbocharged engine with close to 300bhp, enabling it to hit 0-62mph in just 5.0 seconds on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. Power will be sent to a new improved and lighter four-wheel drive system.

Public debut is most likely at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
