Following Wednesday’s spotting of a 3dr Volkswagen Golf R in Fremantle comes these new pics of another 3dr Golf R from Port Kembla, south of Sydney. The model shown appears to have leather seats and I’ve been informed it has a DSG transmission.
The very interesting thing here is that, despite photo evidence of two three door models no on local shores, it seems almost certain that Volkswagen Group Australia will not be offering a three door option on a permanent basis.
Quite why these cars are remains uncertain. A mixed up order, promotional purposes? There’s any number of theories and we may never know the true story. The AUSmotive tip of the day would be, if you are sweating on the arrival of a Golf R and want it with three doors, instead of five, then get on down to your Volkswagen dealer and start asking some questions.
For the moment Volkswagen Australia press officers are remaining tight-lipped on these cars and are maintaining a mid-year launch date for the R. If any new information comes to hand you will read it on AUSmotive.
More pics after the break.
