Prior to the Beijing Motor Show 2014 kicking off in the next few days, Volkswagen has confirmed and released the following sketches of the Volkswagen Golf R 400 Concept which will debut at the show. In recent months it has been speculated that this souped-up Golf R would instead be called the Golf R Evo.
As the name of the Volkswagen Golf R 400 Concept suggests, the car delivers a mighty 395 hp (400 PS). All of this power comes from the small, single turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and when all that power is sent through all four wheels, the Golf R Concept will reportedly hit 100 km/h in a brisk 3.9 seconds. Torque has also been significantly increased from the 280 lb-ft of the standard Golf R with it rising to 383 lb-ft. When it is all said and done, the VW Golf R 400 Concept tops out at 282 km/h.
As the following sketches show, the Golf R 400 Concept also features a much more aggressive body than the standard Golf R. Most prominently, it features a revised front fascia with new air intakes and a redesigned front grille. It also features a bright yellow 400 logo up front. Elsewhere, widened wheel arches can be seen as well as new wheels.
