Volkswagen Golf R32 MK5
The Volkswagen Golf R32 MK5 went on sale in late September 2007 as is still a cult classic within the Automotive community as it was the last Golf with a naturally aspirated 6 cyclinder engine. Maximum power output for the updated VR6 was 184KW (246 BHP) and 320NM (236 lb ft) of torque.
The final iteration of the VR6 motor had a top speed of 250KM/H and would reach 100KM/H from stand still in 6.5 seconds. It featured the revolutionary DSG (Direct-shift Gearbox) which was a dual clutch transmission which has since been implemented by the Volkswagen group across all their brands in different variations. Manual variations were also offered.
Both Audi and Porsche use the same DSG gearbox in their newer vehicles, albeit updated. A Haldex 4motion drivetrain meant power was translated through a part-time Four-wheel drive system.
AutoCraze has expertly fitted hundreds of Golf R32’s as they are still as popular as ever. Customers choose Rotiform and Niche Wheels for Golf R’s however BBS, TSW and Envizio are all popular choices for their Golf R wheels.

It boasted a larger K04 turbo than the standard FSI EA113 engine and a reinforced engine blocked, larger intercooler and stronger piston rings. The Golf R drivetrain was a revised version of the Haldex four-wheel drive system in the R32 MK5.
