After reading the thread about the Golf 1 still being in production in SA, I realised that nothing was mentioned about the new "fast version" of the Golf 1 that has been launched in SA as a limited version. It's called the Citi R-line. http://www.motoring.co.za/index.php?fSectionId=754&fArticleId=3787829

I think its great that you guys still have the mark 1 golf in production but have you seen this new Golf from VW.





Monster W12 Golf unleashed
Meet Volkswagen's biggest-hitting Golf ever. The GTI W12 has a mid-mounted 6.0-litre twin-turbo engine producing a massive 641bhp!

The VW can sprint from 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and hit a maximum speed of 184mph

Seen it, yes. On another forum the heading was: "The Golf to end all" which I think was very appropriate!

The nose on that Golf GTI W12 looks as boringly bland and characterless as most modern snoopy-nosed cars.

The body would have to be hellishly strong not to pretzel itself with the torque from the W12.  Was it designed from the ground up with the W12 in mind, or is it just another 4- or 6-cylinder design that will be bodily compromised with all that power?
