Hello, Fastest Laps and Hoppelmoppel123. My mistake!
I'm sorry about the confusion. It appears Autocar did a rating on some new VW Golfs as is shown below by Hoppelmoppel123. They didn't give the Gold R a full 8 page road test at all as they promised from the week before. The Autocar magazine is having great difficulties arriving over here in Ireland.
Apologies once again!
And thank you for sorting everything out, gentlemen.

Autocar recently tested the Volkswagen Mk 8 Golf R.
Does anyone have the acceleration times they got?

Safe driving,

flt 158.

What is the issue date for Autocar magazine which features Golf R instrumented test?

Hasn't the MK8 R just done a sub 8 minute lap on the Nordschleife?

Remember the time when the drift mode in the A45 AMG was announced?

Yeah, this Golf is gonna get it too.
