Volkswagen has announced the highly awaited Golf R 20th Anniversary Edition for the North American market. The special edition celebrates 20 years of high performance all-wheel-drive Golf cars which traces its roots back to the Golf R32 released in 2002.

The Golf R 20th Anniversary Edition utilises the same MQB chassis and 311bhp EA888 evo4 TSI engine. The engine is mated to a choice of either six-speed manual or the seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Subtle performance upgrades have bee made to the Golf R for the 20th Anniversary Edition to give it an edge in performance
Select changes have been made to the Golf R 20th Anniversary Edition's exterior to differentiate it from the standard Golf R. Starting from the top, deleting the standard sunroof shaves weight from the Golf R's highest point and streamlines the hatchback's roofline.

From the side, the Golf R's large 19-inch Estoril wheels are finished in Gloss Black and are fitted with 235/35 summer performance tyres. As with every Golf R, a torque vectoring all-wheel-drive system is paired with an advanced DCC adaptive damping system to help ensure power makes it to the wheels that need it in any driving situation.

The 20th Anniversary Edition will be offered in Lapiz Blue Metallic, Deep Black Pearl, and Pure White, with a limited allocation of vehicles for each colour. Subtle trim details further differentiate the special edition. The mirror caps are finished in Lapiz Blue on Pure White and Deep Black vehicles, while on those painted in Lapiz Blue, the mirror caps are gloss black.

Yes, that is genuine carbon fibre, not the faux carbon fibre items which do nothing but cheapen the feel of a car's interior. 
Onto the interior, the dash panel and front door trim feature genuine carbon fiber decor inserts for the first time in a production Volkswagen vehicle.

Keen eyes will note the 'R' logo finished in blue on the steering wheel clasp.

Owners of 20th Anniversary Golf R models will be reminded of the uniqueness of the limited edition model by the key fob, which features an 'R' logo that is finished in blue.
