Curtain up for the Golf R 333 Limited Edition. This extraordinary special-edition model, limited to only 333 vehicles, is a true powerhouse based on the Golf R Performance, boasting an impressive output of 333 PS (245 kW). Delivering exceptional driving stability and traction, this all-wheel-drive marvel is equipped with top-of-the-line features like R-Performance Torque Vectoring and Vehicle Dynamics Manager. Catching everyone’s attention, the Golf R 333 sports a stunning Lime Yellow Metallic paint job, while black accents enhance its exclusive appearance. As an aspiring collector’s item, the special edition can be pre-ordered from German dealerships starting June 2, with deliveries scheduled for October of this year.
“The Golf R 333 sets new standards for performance and equipment, exceeding our customers’ expectations,” says Hakim Halimi, Head of Product Marketing at Volkswagen R. Among its impressive features is the R-Performance Torque Vectoring with Vehicle Dynamics Manager, intelligently distributing drive power not only between the front and rear axles but also between the two rear wheels. This remarkable capability elevates sportiness, particularly during cornering. For a heightened driving experience, the Golf R 333 offers specialized driving profiles, including Drift and Special, designed to unleash exhilaration even outside public roads. The addition of the R Performance exhaust system from Akrapovič, with titanium rear silencers, and the stylish 19-inch Estoril wheel rims with semi-slick tires further emphasize the car’s motorsports character. Notably, the top speed has been increased to an impressive 270 km/h.
The decision to limit this edition to only 333 vehicles stems from the robust engine power of 245 kW (333 PS) and an exceptional torque of 420 newton meters. Engine tuning enhancements result in highly responsive load change response. To maintain a consistent turbocharger speed during partial-load driving, it is preloaded, enabling rapid power development for immediate acceleration. Furthermore, the open throttle valve during overrun phases enhances dynamics and on-road performance. When the driver releases the accelerator and then accelerates again, engine torque builds up faster, significantly improving responsiveness. Achieving an astonishing 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in just 4.6 seconds, the Golf R 333 Limited Edition secures its place as the best-in-class performer among its key competitors.
In addition to the mesmerizing Lime Yellow Metallic paintwork, the Golf R 333 Limited Edition expands the color range for the Golf R, which already includes Pure White, Lapiz Blue Metallic, and Deep Black Pearl Effect. Hakim Halimi notes, “With its special exterior color, black-painted roof, and unique design decals featuring the 333 logo on the sides, this Golf R is unlike any other before it. As the first Volkswagen R model strictly limited to 333 units, each car features a sequentially numbered badge in the interior.”
The Golf R 333 Limited Edition doesn’t compromise on comfort and advanced technology. Premium sport seats in Nappa leather, complete with integrated head restraints, provide utmost support during spirited driving. Illuminating the road ahead, the powerful IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights, including the Light and Vision package, ensure exceptional visibility. The IQ.DRIVE package equips the car with state-of-the-art driver assist systems, such as Travel Assist, Lane Assist lane-keeping system, Emergency Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with stop & go function. Additional noteworthy features include a center airbag (front), rearview camera system, and a Harman Kardon sound system with 8+1 loudspeakers and 480 W total output, delivering an immersive audio experience within the cabin.
The Golf R holds an esteemed position in the automotive world, with over 250,000 orders placed since its debut in 2002. Peter Jost, Head of Marketing & Sales at Volkswagen R, recognizes the significance of the Golf R 333 Limited Edition, stating, “This model holds immense importance for our brand, turbocharging the Volkswagen R brand’s allure as an exclusive and highly sought-after range. Every customer can be proud to own an exceptionally rare vehicle, potentially becoming a valuable collector’s item.”
Starting at a price of 76,410 euros, the Golf R 333 Limited Edition can be pre-ordered from German dealerships beginning June 2. Production of all 333 units at the Wolfsburg plant is scheduled for September, with deliveries commencing in October.
