2014 VW Golf R Mk 7 spy video

We have video of the next generation Golf R – the 2014 VW Golf R Mk 7 – testing on track at the Nurburgring ahead of a likely debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

2014 VW Golf R Mk 7 spy video still

We did think, a few weeks ago when VW were playing tease with a ‘Frozen Beast’ teaser, that they were about to reveal (at least a concept of) the 2014 Golf R. But it wasn’t. In fact, it was the Mk 6 Golf R Cabriolet, rather late to the Mk6 party with the Mk 7 Golf now in the wild.

But despite the disappointment that the new R Cabrio is the old Golf R without a roof, we still expect the Mk 7 Golf R tin top to arrive at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September (or Geneva in March 2014 at latest) ahead of an on-sale date sometime in 2014.

That’s been made a little more sure with a spy video of the Mk 7 Golf R out playing at the Nurburgring with fairly light disguise (below).

Sounding a lot better than a 2.0 litre turbo 4-cylinder should, the Golf R looks to be making the most of its 4WD and a likely 280bhp or so at its disposal and makes relatively short work of the Nurburgring’s many twists and turns.

It’ll be good to see the proper grown-up hot hatch the Golf R is back in production.
