Oh, what a difference a letter makes. When Volkswagen announced that the all-new 2012 Golf R would be available for the first time ever, enthusiasts rejoiced with a capital R. We’re excited about it, too, which is why we’re celebrating its launch by offering our fans a chance to win the Golf R Ultimate Fan Experience.
With 256 horsepower, a turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI engine, standard six-speed manual transmission, 4Motion all-wheel-drive and a zero-to-60 time of less than six seconds, the 2012 Golf R is sure to please anyone looking for thrills behind the wheel. But we’re not looking for just anyone—we’re looking for the Ultimate Golf R Fan. If that sounds like you, here’s what you could win:
- A seven-day, six-night trip to Germany
- A visit to Wolfsburg to tour the Autostadt and Volkswagen headquarters
- A visit to Nürburg to drive a Golf R on the Nürburgring with instruction from professional drivers
