With the extensive choice, efficient and exhilarating performance and exciting technology of the latest Volkswagen models, there is always much for Sinclair Volkswagen customers to celebrate when buying a car, but even more so this year as the manufacturer marks some notable milestones with the arrival of some very special, limited editions.

R is a letter that has become synonymous with the very best in Volkswagen performance and style, and especially now with the release of a scintillating, new Golf.

The Golf R

Bridging the gap between everyday companion and thoroughbred athlete, the new Golf R “20 Years” is the latest performance-oriented Golf from the R stable. Two decades after the first Golf R32 made its bow and unleashed 177 kW (241 PS) from its 3.2-litre six-cylinder engine, its modern-day successor has been unveiled and has already put the R into ‘Record-breaking’.

With its 245 kW (333 PS) capability and the increased driving dynamics afforded by the intelligent combination of the R-Performance package, Vehicle Dynamics Manager and R-Performance Torque Vectoring, the Golf R “20 Years’ has become the fastest R model of all time when put through its paces on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife racetrack in Germany. The anniversary vehicle with its enhanced power bettered the previous lap record of a Golf R on the 20,832 km long circuit by an impressive four seconds.

Sinclair Volkswagen customers keen to get their hands on this formidable Golf will need to be just as quick off the mark though, as the manufacturer is limiting the production period to approximately one year only.

The sporty prowess and sublime styling of the Volkswagen R brand isn’t just reserved for the Golf though, as there are a host of other models for the discerning driver seeking the combination of class-leading practicality and high performance to choose from.

The T-Roc R

Amongst them is the hugely popular and recently-enhanced T-Roc, What Car? Magazine’s ‘Small SUV of the Year’, which has now clocked up more than one million sales worldwide.

With even crisper and sportier styling, including an improved interior that benefits from a redesigned dashboard and the use of even higher-grade materials throughout, the T-Roc R is both delectable and dynamic. It boasts a punchy 300 PS 2.0-litre TSI engine, 0 to 62 mph acceleration time of 4.9 seconds and 155 mph top speed (where permissible) and is equipped exclusively with a seven-speed DSG transmission and 4MOTION four-wheel drive for a thrilling ownership experience.

The Tiguan R

It’s also been a notable year for the Tiguan R, which has now achieved 10,000 sales across the globe. Over and above its space and comfort, the pairing of a 320 PS evo4 four-cylinder 2.0 turbocharged engine with 4MOTION R-Performance Torque Vectoring systems have proved irresistible for those wanting to take their motoring to another level and helped to establish this majestic model as Volkswagen’s range-topping performance SUV.

2023 marks a quarter of a century since Volkswagen first added the iconic letters ‘GTI’ to a Polo and it is celebrating this milestone with another limited-edition release.

The Polo GTI

Only 350 of the 2,500 Polo GTI Edition 25 production run are earmarked for the UK and are sure to prove a collector’s item.

All the classic GTI hallmarks are included – red brake calipers and trim strips, a honeycomb design on the radiator grille and chrome-plated tailpipes – as well as exclusive anniversary equipment such as 18-inch black gloss Adelaide alloy wheels, a black roof, and black exterior mirrors. Complementing the car’s sporty appearance with lowered specially tuned sports suspension, is the breathtaking performance delivered by its powerful 2.0-litre 207 PS TSI engine that propels the front-wheel drive Polo GTI Edition 25 from zero to 62 mph in just 6.5 seconds.
