The recently-unveiled Golf R looks to be one of the best Golfs ever made, leaping up to 300hp and continuing the R tradition of all-wheel drive super-VWs with vastly better lines than the Mk5 or 6 Rs. Seeing pictures of the car from Frankfurt reminded me of my strong desire for original R, the Mk4 R32. It looked and sounded great and nailed my weak spot: a six-speed manual driving all four wheels. Prices continue to drop on these beastly golfs, making it that much more tempting to snatch one up.
Engine: 3.2 liter VR6
Transmission: 6-speed manual
Mileage: 139,000 mi
All Wheel Drive 3.2 liter VR6 – 4motion 6 Speed Manual Transmission Deep Blue Metallic – (1 of 1000) Black Interior with factory Konig leather bucket seats and brushed aluminum trim I love this car, but work has forced me to buy a new car! Only 5000 of these machines were released to the US in 4 colors. I bought this R32 in June 2006 w/12K miles and have taken very good care of it. No accidents & clean title.
I’ve owned three MK4 s (VR6/20th/R32) and this is by far my favorite! You will not be disappointed with this rare VW!
