265-hp 2011 Golf R

It’s a good year for those of us who lust after German hot hatches. According to VW, the 2011 VW Golf R will be coming to the U.S. The R will come packed with a TSI four good for 265 horsepower and 258 foot-pounds of twist. The all-wheel-drive monster will be available with a six-speed manual or a super-quick DSG automatic. It’ll reportedly hit 60 mph in 5.5 seconds (5.7 with the manual gearbox) and run all the way up to a 155 mph top speed. And it’ll carry you, your dog, and a small flat’s worth of furniture.

    I loved the R32, but couldn’t get past the seats for daily use. Huge bolsters and a fairly wide sill required you to climb into the cockpit; not what you want to do in a suit and tie.

    I still think the V6 they used in the R32 was one of the best sounding motors ever made.
