Khodrocar - If you fancy a bit more R from your hot Golf, the Performance Pack complements the 306bhp and 4Motion all-wheel drive system with a new set of ‘R-Performance’ brakes, which save weight and add some bonus brake feel.
The 155mph top speed has been derestricted, so the Golf R hatch with the Performance Pack will reach 166mph, while the estate will hit 168mph. New 19-inch ‘Spielberg’ alloys and a more pronounced rear spoiler complete the job. The Performance Pack will cost you £2,300.
Plus, if you want your R to sounds more ‘ARRRR’, on top of the Perf. Pack you can also spec an Akrapovic titanium exhaust for an extra £2,975. The throatier system is 7kg lighter than the standard and uses valve control tech to modulate when to fully let rip.
The Performance Pack can only be fitted from new straight out of the factory, but not retrospectively.
If you want the whole lot, you’ll have to fork out £5,275 on top of the list price of a shiny new Golf R hatch or estate.
