April 13th, 2015 by

If you thought the 2014 New York International Auto Show was great for the Volkswagen brand, you’re not alone. But VW is letting consumers know they’re not done delivering kind surprises just yet.

The 2014 Beijing Auto Show, beginning April 21st, will see the official unveiling of the Volkswagen Golf R 400 concept. While the sketch itself shows you the stylistic direction the German automaker has chosen for their Golf R model, the more impressive feat of this model will be its performance.

According to a press release shown on Autoblog.com, the new Golf “promises a 0-62 mph time of just 3.9 seconds – a full second quicker than the standard Golf R – and a top speed of 174 mph.” The new Golf R concept also is said to come with an engine capable of producing 394 HP, up 100 HP from the previous Golf R.
