As noted in another post, MT and C&T acceleration test times for the R are considerably different. Putting 0-60 times aside the 1/4 trap speeds and times are not even close. I'm assuming both tests were ran with European models. To make matters more interesting two recent Carwow videos noted that the Golf R was measurably slower on a second test. Carwow's first test times and speeds were close to CD's. Has VW detuned the R after its Euro launch? Were the first cars out ringers?
