Did we finish showing you all the supercars in Dubai? Not even close, since the land of very cheap petrol will never run out of V8s and V12s. But we thought it’d be interesting to show you something different for a change.
This is the Golf R, built on the Golf VI platform. It’s probably one of the only quick or desirable VWs. The MkV R was called the R32 because it had the famous VR6 3.2-liter V6 engine, but this has a 2.0-liter TFSI with even more power, less weight and better economy. But who cars about fuel in Dubai.

Dubai is filled with expensive cars, and even the expats are doing quite well. Very few people have the “oldies”, and those who do chose the more mechanically elegant classic 4x4s for desert use. This Golf R has a bit of everything: 4x4, a substantial price, sportscar exhaust note and even style.

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.
