  • Next gen MKVIII (MK8) Volkswagen Golf GTI expected to top 300 horsepower

    This rumor makes sense for several reasons. First of all, the MKVIII Golf R is expected to pack over 400 horsepower and finally allow Volkswagen to claim the title of most powerful production four-cylinder. That is, if AMG allows it.


    The GTI would then comfortably slot into current Golf R power levels which is a natural fit.

    Yes, a big jump from 228 horsepower for the front wheel drive GTI but GTI's in the aftermarket routinely make well over 300 wheel horsepower let alone 300 crank horses.

    This rumor comes from Autobild without any quoted source but considering the Golf R's expected jump it makes logical sense.
