Volkswagen pulling the plug on the R32 for the USA

Volkswagen announced the U.S. will no longer be receiving the hottest version of the Rabbit/Golf/GTI known as the R32 . Although this car found a home with many wannabe racers, it was likely hard for Volkswagen to sell a $33,000 hatchback that didn’t look too different from the $16,000 VW Rabbit. One hope is that the the 250 hp all-wheel drive hot hatch will return to these shores when the new Golf VI comes to the US market possibly before the end of 2009.
