First local Golf R32 buyer feted

KUALA LUMPUR: Volkswagen Group Malaysia recently presented the keys of a Golf R32 to business and financial adviser Wan Ahmad Satria, the company's first customer for that model.

Wan Ahmad, who is also a sports car enthusiast, said he had always admired the overall quality of Volkswagen vehicles and it was exciting to finally own the R32.

He is also planning to take the R32 for some serious weekend driving.

“Besides speed, what attracted me to the R32 is its safety features. Whether in wet or dry driving conditions, I can be assured of an excellent response time, better handling and a higher margin of safety,” Wan Ahmad said when receiving the keys from Volkswagen Group Malaysia managing director Axel Barth at its headquarters in Bangsar here.

Packing 250bhp under the hood, the R32’s permanent 4MOTION four-wheel drive promises excellent handling and control under difficult road conditions. It has a top speed of 248kph, and with a superfast six-speed dual clutch gearbox, can go from 0 to 100kph in 6.2 seconds.

Besides being equipped with up to six airbags, this five-door hatchback also scores a full five-star rating in the Euro NCAP frontal, side, and pole crash tests.
