2016 Volkswagen Golf R
After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Classic Car Overview
This 2016 Mk7 Golf R is something you dont see every day. From the outside, it might look like a standard Golf R apart from the bronze TE37 wheels, but lurking under the hood is a 2.5L turbocharged inline 5 from an Audi RS3. Since the platforms are relatively similar, the 5-cylinder looks as though it should have been there the entire time. Stock RS3 power is rated at 401hp, but this engine has been fitted with a larger turbo, a K&N cold air intake, an aftermarket intercooler, and an engine and transmission tune. Not only was the engine swapped, but the front and rear seats, the shift knob, and the steering wheel from a donor RS3 were all changed, making it a true OEM plus build. This might be one of the coolest modern sleeper cars you can buy, and the best part is that it all feels OEM.
