New colours and more goodies for Volkswagen Golf R Final Edition

The Volkswagen Golf R will be available in factory hand painted custom colours in the form of the Golf R Final Edition, which starts from $57,990 plus on-road cost.

Of the 450 units of this last special edition of the Mark 7.5 Golf R before its replacement next year, 150 will be available in a choice of three previously unavailable colours. These are: Victory Blue; Viper Green metallic (recalling the Scirocco R); and Violet Touch Pearlescent.

These shades are Volkswagen Colour Concept custom orders for which the car is removed from the assembly line to be hand-painted in a specialised factory shop before it is returned to the line for completion. This option is $300.

The bulk of the Golf R Final Editions available come in three familiar R colours: Pure White; Lapiz Blue Metallic; and Deep Black Pearl Effect. These add no cost.

Regardless of colouring and in addition the usual Golf R’s extensive array of standard equipment, all Golf R Final Editions come with 19-inch Black Pretoria lightweight alloy wheels, Gloss Black door mirrors, ‘Carbon’ Nappa leather appointed upholstery, and Dynaudio premium audio system.

The Golf R Final Edition will arrive in Australia in May. The standard Golf R hatchback remains on sale from $55,490.
