German studio delta4x4 will turn the Volkswagen Golf R into a “hardcore” SUV. He will receive a clearance of 200 millimeters, an extended body, LED spotlights and an expeditionary trunk. In terms of technology, no changes should be expected: it will still be a 2.0 turbo engine, two gearbox options and 4Motion all-wheel drive with an active rear differential.
Atelier delta4x4 is famous for turning completely unsuitable cars into SUVs. So, long before the premiere of the Porsche 911 Dakar, the company built a “rally” 911 Carrera 4. Then it adapted the Rolls-Royce Cullinan to nature trips. And then she gave the Tesla Model Y the geometric cross-country ability of the Niva. The new project of the Germans is no less exotic – because it is an all-terrain vehicle based on the Volkswagen Golf R.
The car still exists in the form of renders, but the amount of work is already known. According to delta4x4, the ground clearance of the Golf will increase by 80 millimeters (lift + wheels), the body will expand slightly. The hatchback will be equipped with PIAA spotlights and an expeditionary trunk. With such equipment, it will be easier to move along gravel roads, forest clearings and fields, but, of course, no one is counting on serious rides.
Under the hood, a 2.0 TSI turbo engine with a capacity of 320 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque (333 hp if it is a Golf R Performance, Golf R 20 Years or Golf R 333) will remain, combined with a six-speed “mechanics” or a seven-speed “robot” DSG. Naturally, 4Motion all-wheel drive with an active rear differential, electronic imitation of XDS locks, DCC adaptive shock absorbers and drift mode will remain.
