A Volkswagen Golf powered by a five-cylinder engine has been spotted testing at the Nurburgring.

Filmed by Chris for the popular motoring YouTube channel CvdZijden, he says: "During my stay at the Nurburgring I have filmed this Volkswagen Golf R420. It never came to production after the truth about the dieselgate.

"Instead of a high-strung 2.0-litre four-cylinder based on the EA888 Golf R engine, the upcoming Golf R420 will apparently borrow the 2.5-litre inline-5 from the Audi RS3 Sportback! 

"As you can see, the prototype mule actually uses the two oval exhaust tips usually found on Audi Sport models, or the ones from the RS3, to be more exact."
