Manufacturer WArranty





The idea of a fast Volkswagen Golf began as an underground skunkworks project in 1975 that went on to become the original hot hatch. Now, 48 years later, the segment is still defined by Volkswagen’s flagship performance Golf model.

Featuring a 320bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre engine mated to an intelligent four-wheel-drive system with seamlessly-shifting DSG gearbox, the Mk8 Golf R offers supercar rivalling all-season speed in a highly practical hatchback body, making the ‘R’ the very pinnacle of the breed.

This particularly sublime example, drenched in a flawless coat of Lapiz Blue metallic paint, takes the R recipe, and adds an even spicier ingredient in the form of over £9,200 of factory fitted options, including rarities such as a lightweight Akrapovic titanium sports exhaust system, panoramic glass sunroof, and the desirable (and now discontinued) R Performance Package.

As an option that is no longer available to specify new from VW, the £2,050 R Performance Package adds 19in Estoril black diamond cut alloy wheels, a larger rear spoiler, reprogrammed progressive steering and a top speed increase to 167mph. However, the real game changer of the package is the addition of two selectable driver modes. These utilise the car’s advanced rear axle torque vectoring differential to allow up to 100% of the torque to the rear outside wheel in the track-only ‘Drift’ mode, or can be switched to a special setting configured for the highest performance around Germany’s famed Nürburgring Nordschleife racetrack.

Adding to this stunning specification is a Maxton Design front splitter and deeper side skirts, coupled with carbon fibre mirror caps, which add a more aggressive appearance to the subtle exterior aesthetic.

This intensely capable and highly-exclusive hot hatch has never been mapped or modified and remains in completely standard condition, verified by our dealer-level diagnostic software, as well as the launch control log showing ZERO launches in its lifetime, where many Golf Rs are in the hundreds! Covering only 6600 miles from new, it has been fastidiously maintained and comes with a full Volkswagen main-dealer service history as well as benefitting from a recent service and a comprehensive manufacturers’ warranty until March 2025.

Presented in simply exquisite order after undergoing Automotive Addiction’s in-house 60-hour preparation process, including multi-stage paint correction for a utterly jaw-dropping finish, we truly believe this is the very best Golf R on the market today, so please take the time to view our comprehensive walkaround video, and be sure to contact us without delay if you wish to discuss this vehicle further or secure it with a deposit.

Our painstaking inspection process has revealed no instances of non-factory paintwork, with consistent paint micron readings across all body-panels. So you can buy in confidence that this most searing of hatchbacks’s has led a life free of damage and is in simply impeccable condition both inside and out.

Currently unavailable to order from Volkswagen in this specification, this Mk8 Golf R is the perfect opportunity to get your hands on Volkswagens flagship performance hatchback. With over £9,200 of factory fitted options, this example is one of the most desirable specification Golf R’s available on the market today.
