Volkswagen demonstrates the capabilities of its new Golf R, with a few hot laps on-track with World Rally Championship driver Sébastien Ogier.
Have you ever found yourself in this situation: brand new sports behemoth in a deserted circuit paddock, keys near-to hand, track adjacent, and no hope of jumping behind the wheel yourself? Actually we have, when we shot the mightily mental Nissan Juke-R just after the 2012 Dubai 24 Hours. So we know exactly how the chap feels about the new seventh generation Golf R in this latest video from Volkswagen.
But while we could only content ourselves with a throaty roar of the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 being fired repeatedly into life, VW’s protagonist enjoys several circuit hot laps in VW’s new hot hatch riding shotgun to World Rally Champion in the making Sébastien Ogier.
Some people have all the luck.
