Australia has been denied the most powerful version yet of the Volkswagen Golf.
The Golf R has just been launched in Europe with a 199kW turbocharged four-cylinder, but the German company says Australian-specification models will use a slightly detuned engine owing to concerns with the country?s hot climate.
Power drops to 188kW to safeguard the hot-hatch?s engine-cooling system, though torque remains unchanged at 350Nm
Wow that's pretty lame, I would have to assume the American's will get the same limited version
