Volkwagen has finally rubberstamped its R range by creating a specialist company to oversee its sportier activities.

In the same vein as Mercedes-Benz’s AMG and BMW’s M, Volkswagen R GmbH is wholly owned by Volkwagen.

“Our vehicles contribute to the emotionalisation and growth of the Volkswagen brand,” explained Ulrich Riestenpatt, General Manager of Volkswagen R GmbH.



The sportier offshoot operates out of its own Warmenau headquarters near Wolfsburg where it is responsible for the development, implementation and sales of VW R products.

Scirocco R and Golf R are the first two high-profile offerings from the subsidiary, which will also see to the carmaker’s R-Line and more luxurious Volkwagen Exclusive packages.

The Scirocco R and Golf R arrive in South Africa in the third quarter of 2010.
