2019 Volkswagen Arteon R 400HP Release Date, Price, Spy Shots, & Redesign – If you appeared at the new Volkswagen Arteon and imagined it’d make a solid basis for a performance sedan, you are one of many. In fact, in accordance to reviews, VW is focusing on just this kind of a beast – with over 400 horsepower.
Talking to Car Throttle at the media launch of the new Polo GTI, Volkswagen spokesman Martin Hube mentioned that the company has a prototype for an Arteon R in the operates. The prototype reportedly packs a (probable twin-) turbocharged version of VW’s 3.0-liter VR6 engine, mailing some 404 horsepower to all four wheels.
“I’m entirely confident that this combination is incredibly nice,” stated Hube. “We’ve merged it with the last version of the Haldex [four-wheel drive system], whereby you can provoke a bit of oversteer. This is a real nimble, powerful car.” Hube even journeyed so far as to advise that it’d be a hotter performer than the Porsche Panamera, base versions of that also make use of a 3.0-liter turbo six to the tune of 325 horsepower (434 hp in the 4S spec).
Here is wanting that the coffee bean-surfaces in Wolfsburg have the green light, regardless of whether it’s nearly totally unlikely to make the transatlantic voyage to North American showrooms.
