VW will launch the Golf R36 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. (AUTOMEDIA)

Here are the first shots of what's to become Volkswagen's ultimate canon ball: the Golf R36! Just before being replaced by the new Mk. VI model VW will top the current range with this über-Golf at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September this year.

And don't get fooled by the R32 badge on the back of the car in our spy shots. This is according to our insider info the secret new R36.

It's going to be powered by the Passat R36's 3.6-litre V6 delivering 220kW.

It's exterior will be yet more aggressive than that of the R32 with huge air-intakes at front and a diffuser and mid-mounted pair of thick exhaust pipes at the rear.

A Haldex-built all-wheel-drive will be standard.
