Look Out, The 290-Horsepower VW Golf GTI TCR is Coming

The Volkswagen Golf GTI has long been an enthusiast favorite, and now we’ve learned that the company is planning to release a version inspired by its  TCR International Series race car, the Golf GTI TCR. While the Golf R — with its tenacious all-wheel drive and 292-horsepower turbo mill — will remain the baddest vehicle wearing a Golf badge, the TCR version sounds pretty intriguing.

2018 Volkswagen Golf S Manual Test Drive Review

And while some may snicker at the fact that you didn’t go for the upscale model, those in the automotive “know” will be congratulating you for buying one of the best compact cars currently on sale….
