In yet another genius Volkswagen move, one of the world's largest automakers brought a two-door car to the market it will not sell it in.


Is this some sort of joke? I mean, really, they couldn't give the largest US-based show the right car it's bringing to the market? I am left shaking my head. This is a double whammy after seeing the Dune, which is neither interesting or cool.

Now the Golf R has some street cred at least. It is the most powerful Golf ever produced, which should get buyers that want to race Mitsubishi Lancer Evolutions and Subaru WRX STIs a thrill. In addition, it will roll out with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder motor equipped with a turbo — you know what that means: some serious turbo kits will come out to boost power in the aftermarket.

Although my colleague Agent 009 was sure to post pictures earlier this week, being a VW fan and owner I just felt the urge to share some more shots with you.

That said, scope out more snaps of the all-new MKVII Golf R below.
