Volkswagen Golf R Final Edition heading here soon

The Volkswagen Golf R will farewell showrooms with with a new eye-searing palette. Where VW's primo hot hatch has always rocked a sensible, buttoned-up design language when compared to outlandish offerings such as the Ford Focus RS and Honda Civic Type-R, the Golf R Final Edition - as the name suggests, the last hurrah for the seventh-generation model - doesn't stick to the script.

Elderly man builds 447kW Golf R - Video

The Volkswagen Golf R is hardly what you'd call slow, but imagine doubling the amount of power it produces. Well, a 75-year-old man in the UK has done just that. His Mk7 Golf R has been tuned to deliver just under 600bhp (447kW), not that you'd be able to tell by looking at it. The main changes contributing to the power bump are a massive turbocharger and upgraded fuel pump he's "shoehorned" into the engine bay. You can get the full rundown of the modifications during the video clip below.
