We know, we know – this hot little guy isn’t really new or anything. Volkswagen first rolled out the Golf R 400 concept in Beijing earlier this year, and since its debut, we’ve heard rumours that the German automaker might-perhaps-maybe-hopefully build the thing. Its showing here in Los Angeles simply marks the first time it’s debuting in North America, and honestly, we can’t get enough. So here it is, again. Hello, Golf R 400 – we love you.

The original concept packed 395 horsepower from an overblown 2.0-litre turbo-four, though the most recent reports suggest a production version could produce over 400 hp. To keep it all in line, the concept has all-wheel drive. And inside, it’s the same functional, comfortable Golf we’ve always loved.
