A moderator on the VW Watercooled website has apparently stumbled across Australian pricing for the forthcoming Volkswagen Golf R. Also included in the list was pricing on options available, but of course, it's all recommended retail pricing, and not driveaway.
Considering the power increase over the standard GTI and the addition of all-wheel-drive, the pricing looks quite sharp.
