History of the Volkswagen Golf R

The Volkswagen Golf was a compact family car introduced in 1974.  It sold well.  It was practical. But, it left a lot to be desired for anyone that valued a car for more than just an A to B machine.  The GTI variant of the Golf was a major improvement but starting in the 4th generation, Volkswagen dropped the hammer with the Golf R.

The Volkswagen Golf R32 was the first of “R”.  It came with a 3.2l v6 and all wheel drive.  This car was the fastest Volkswagen ever made up to that point.  The 5th generation was very similar.  The 6th generation saw the changeover from the naturally aspirated v6 to the turbo 2.0l  inline four.  Instead of calling it the R20, they dropped the numeric moniker in favor of the simpler and identifiable “R”.

The seventh generation Golf R was the best one yet.  This vehicle is the fastest Volkswagen has ever made so it’s already potent in stock form.  Use some of the many aftermarket MK7 Golf R performance parts and it becomes even more impressive.

Why Choose COBB for Your Golf R

The Golf R is the King of the Hot Hatch segment so naturally, it provoked COBB’s interest even back in the R32 days.  Once it became turbocharged, it was only a matter of time. 

The fact there wasn’t an easy, at-home, tuning solution for the Golf R was the motivating factor for COBB’s involvement.  With the COBB Accessport, you’re able to tune your Golf R anywhere, and change maps as you continue down the upgrade path, all without any shop visits or additional fees.

Support starts with the MK7 and extends to the newer 7.5 generation.  DSG tuning is also available. COBB offers a complete tuning solution and hard part upgrades for your modern Golf R.

Replacing the factory intake and airbox with the COBB SF Intake System will greatly reduce pre-turbo restrictions. When a restriction is removed, it allows the engine to be more efficient while also enabling it to make more overall power! The higher flowing intake also makes turbo and bypass valve noises more audible.
