2019 Volkswagen Arteon R 400HP Release Date, Price, Redesign, & Spy Shots – If you checked at the new Volkswagen Arteon and imagined it’d make a solid foundation for a performance sedan, you are not by yourself. In fact, based on records, VW is taking care of just these kinds of a beast – with over 400 horsepower.
Discussing to Car Throttle at the media launch of the new Polo GTI, Volkswagen spokesperson Martin Hube mentioned that the company has a prototype for an Arteon R in the performs. The prototype reportedly packs a (most likely twin-) turbocharged version of VW’s 3.0-liter VR6 engine, mailing some 404 horsepower to all four wheels.
“I’m absolutely confident that it combo is incredibly wonderful,” mentioned Hube. “We’ve put together it with the last version of the Haldex [four-wheel drive system], whereby you can provoke a bit of oversteer. This is a true nimble, powerful car.”
Hube even moved thus far as to propose that it’d be a hotter performer than the Porsche Panamera, base versions of which use a 3.0-liter turbo six to the track of 325 horsepower (434 hp in the 4S spec). Here is expecting that the coffee bean-surfaces in Wolfsburg have the green light, regardless of whether it is virtually totally less likely to make the transatlantic voyage to North American showrooms.
