VW Abandons the VR6 GOLF R

When the MK6 Golf R was announced, Volkswagen opted for a 4-cylinder turbo powerplant. While a very capable engine, it missed the soul and visceral performance of the VR6. It wasn't long before we took the step to shoehorn the VR back in with the debut of the FT740 twin-turbo 3.6L VR6.

With the arrival of the 2.0L Turbo MK7 and MK8 Golf R's, it was clear that Volkswagen had dropped the VR6 for its flagship hatchback once and for all.

In pursuit of OEM fit and finish, the HPA VR550T showcases the precision and attention to detail we are known worlwide for. Our goal is to deliver each car as if it rolled out of the Wolfsburg factory. No need to compromise with this daily driver, take the car for a cross-country road trip, enjoy a weekend track day, and have the peace of mind to throw the keys to anyone without sweating the details.
