WHATIS IT? The next Golf R WHYTHE FUSS? Mark VII hero car WHEN’S IT HERE? 2014 HOWMUCH? About $48K WITH the Volk­swa­gen Golf Mark VII de­but in Paris (and driven there­after by Paul Gover), the top-of-the-range R is al­most ready. Hardly overt, it still gets its own front fas­cia and side skirts. The trade­mark cen­tre-mounted dual ex­haust is not mounted on this pro­to­type yet. The AWD R looks and sounds to be stick­ing with an up­tuned ver­sion of the GTI’s 2.0-litre turbo four.
