VR6-Powered Arteon R With Over 400bhp Confirmed

Volkswagen has confirmed it will produce a high-performance flagship version of its new Arteon sedan that will go head-to-head with cars like the Kia Stinger GT.

Set to be powered by an all-new twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6, the Arteon will produce 301kW. Together with this entertaining engine will be the Arteon R’s 4MOTION all-wheel drive system to allow this sports sedan to reach 100km/h in less than 5 seconds and have a top speed limited to 250km/h.

It will also be capable of oversteer thanks to its latest-generation Haldex AWD system, and testing is already well under the way with a prototype Arteon already running the new powertrain.

Bad news however is that this hot VW will not be produced in right hand drive for sometime….more will be shared very soon.
