Volkswagen Golf R32 2008
A very rare, original R32!
While the R32 might initially seem unassuming, we guarantee it will immediately introduce itself confidently at the very first rev, such is the note of its inspired exhaust.
The Volkswagen Golf R32 represented the highest sporting spec of the Golf line. It features the heralded 3.2 liter VR6 engine that's good for 250 horses. Pair that with a four-wheel drive system and assured handling, the R32 instantly commands a class of its own in its hatchback category. The R32 rockets from 0-100km/h in 6.2 seconds, in no small part due to its seamless DSG gearbox.
Cosmetically, the R32 benefitted from 18" 20-spoke alloys paired with calipers finished in a lovely deep blue. The interior also received an upgrade, with semi-bucket seats for better ergonomics and driver confidence under heavy cornering.
With later Golf R-line cars making use of force-inducted Turbo powerplants, this R32 with its naturally-aspirated VR6 represents the very last of its breed. Produced in small numbers and delivered to Malaysia in even more miniscule amounts, an original R32 is like a needle in a haystack.
The R32 is a nippy hatchback that comfortably delivers decent performance and handling yet can seat 4 with plenty of boot space to spare. Ideal both as a weekend warrior or as a daily runner.
