We're not going to beat around the bush with this story. This is the new Golf R, driven by in Scandinavia.
It's still not a fully built prototype, which explains why it looks like a regular Golf in places, but it does explain a little bit what's going to happen.

Firstly, if you're in love with the current R's twin exhaust tips in the middle of the car, take a good look at them because they are going away. Instead, of that arrangement, the new R has quad exhausts, a little bit like Audi's S4/S5 models.

The new Golf R will reportedly have 290 PS coming from a revised 2-liter turbo TSI mated to 4Motion all-wheel drive and a DSG gearbox. It will arrive at the beginning of 2014 and will start at €38,000.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
