Range-topping special editions might pump out as much as 325hp– that’s more than the existing Golf R. This power-hike will come thanks to the addition of a little electric motor and a powerful 48V battery. As requirement, the GTI will feature a seven-speed DSG automated gearbox– sadly, it’s not known whether the next-generation car will be available with a manual transmission.
