2013 VW GOLF R: Project Gruppe R

Gruppe R is our tarmac rally and loose surface answer to daily driver track cars. Starting out as a stock 2013 Volkswagen Golf R Mk6, the goal of this build is to create a hybridized track and rally recce car that retains amenities for daily driving, but packs the punch in horsepower and handling for back-road barnstorming.

3-way adjustable gravel rally suspension, Dakar-proven brakes, a full aero package and more make this VW stand up in a crowd of lowered cars.
