VW Launches "Golf R Drivers Forever" iPad App

To celebrate the arrival of the 2012 VW Golf R at U.S. dealerships VW has released the “Golf R Drivers Forever” iPad app. The app provides access to everything you would need to know about the Golf R.

Told through the perspective of VW enthusiasts and drivers who helped bring this car to the United States, the app provides an interactive narrative on the evolution of the Golf from its days as the Rabbit in the 1970’s all the way to the present 2012 Golf R model.

“The Golf R app was created to celebrate and thank the Volkswagen brand’s community of enthusiasts because they represent what makes the Golf R special,” said Jon Browning, President and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America. “The app will help build awareness around the Volkswagen brand heritage and we are excited to offer this innovative approach that illustrates the performance of the Golf R.”

The 2012 Golf R is powered by a 2.0L TSI engine with 256 horsepower and 243 lb-ft. of torque. The 2.0L is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission and VW’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system. For the first time, the Golf R will be available in two-and four-door models starting at $33,990.
