Video: Hear the Volkswagen Golf R 400 exercise its lungs


We have all drooled over the mighty Volkswagen Golf R 400 that made its debut at the Beijing Motor Show in April, now we can finally hear what it sounds like.

Captured by YouTube user, Viennasupercars, in Austria where the R 400 graced the Wörthersee gathering of Volkswagen enthusiasts, the concept’s video debut gives us a taste of its raucous soundtrack.

It was being driven onto a truck to be transported to its next destination and we can hear the driver revving its uprated 2.0-litre turbocharge four-cylinder engine that churns out no less than 294kW (400PS) and 450Nm of torque.

With an extra 73kW and 70Nm driving all four wheels while weighing the same as a regular Golf R (1,420kg), the R 400 will rocket from 0-100km/h in a supercar like 3.9 seconds, a full second quicker than the Golf R. It will hit a top speed of 280km/h, 30km/h more than the series production model.

Volkswagen has already confirmed it will put the R 400 into production where it could have even more power.
