Front wheel drive though, missing the whole point of an r over a gti. Can't imagine it's much fun trying to put the power down in the wet.

I think they were only available for a short period and sold a stupidly low number in the UK plus they were a stupid price new.

I seem to remember vw actively pricing all mk6r's high to keep them 'exclusive'. An absolutly crazy idea, its still just a golf. They made up for it with the mk7 though, they seem to be ten a penny round here.
I very rarely see any mk4s, 2 or 3 mk5 and mk6's but probably see 5 or 6 mk7s every day.

I think they were just taking the piss to be honest and the exclusivity was just a consequence :)

The Mk6 golf r cab was crazy money


When they came out, VW UK wanted 40grand for them ,

And the gti cab also came out at same time. And that was 30grand .


And the golf r cab is only fwd.

So you're basically paying 10k over the GTi cab for the r body kit and trim... Madness


Only a few sold. Then VW UK dropped the price by 10k later on, persumably to shift the remaining stock. and the few owners that paid 40k got a refund from VW UK !


Having said all that. It does look quite nice. Just shame it's 2wd !
