German tuning specialist has readied a Golf Mk5 R32 in time for Worthersee 2013.
Suspension specialist H&R has revealed its latest project based on a fifth-gen VW Golf R32 that will debut at this month's Worthersee gathering. Powered by a 250-horsepower 3.2-liter VR6 unit, the four-wheel-drive R32 came with 18-inch Zolder 20-spoke alloys and blue-painted brake calipers. H&R has replaced the alloys with a set of 19-inch OZ Ultraleggera HLT center-lock alloys that are normally found on a Porsche GT2 RS. Brakes were upgraded with carbon discs and fixed calipers were borrowed from an Audi RS6.
The finishing touch on the aftermarket package is the company's very own Black-Line coilover suspension that lowers the car while optimizing the suspension performance of the potent hatchback. After debuting at Worthersee over the weekend of May 17-19, the H&R-tuned Golf R32 will visit the XS Car Night in Dresden, Germany, on June 15, and then the GTI International in the UK on July 6-7.
