However, it still posts a claimed 0-62mph time of 6.5sec – half a second quicker than the GTi – on the way to a limited 155mph top speed (we couldn’t get the GTi past 136mph). So the R32 is fast , but it is also a very accomplished high- speed cruiser.
Golf R – The R model has a 2.0 litre tuned Turbo engine. It’s a newer model and is aimed more at performance as opposed to comfort. It’s notably a lot quicker than the R32 . It has a 2.0 litre turbo engine (like the R ), however it’s designed for comfort as well as performance (like the R32 ).
The R32 gets a 3.2-litre V6 that produces 250bhp, making it the flagship of the Golf range. It’s an engine that’s found in many other Volkswagen Group cars including the Passat and Audi TT, A3 and A4.
By the time the Mk5 R32 went on sale, Volkswagen had dealt with most of the issues with the twin-clutch Direct Shift Gearbox and it’s proved more reliable than early Audi TTs which used the same transmission . Contemporary road tests praised the Mk5 R32 for the amount of grip it offered when cornering.

The new R32 , powered by almost the same narrow-angle V6 engine, doesn’t have such an easy ride, because the Mark Five Golf GTI is probably the best fast hatchback you can buy. But more enlightened souls will point to that pesky GTI and remind you that its 200 turbocharged bhp really is enough for most needs.
The R32 Skyline had all-wheel drive and the famed Nissan RB26DETT inline six that pumped out 280 horsepower.

The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon is the most powerful Volkswagen sedan in the lineup, with the new model coming standard with a 2.0-liter I-4 turbo engine. However, this engine offers the best output from the others, able to output 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.
Volkswagen has made the fastest ever road-going a reality; the new production-spec VW Golf GTI TCR has been official revealed. It’s the ultimate expression of Golf hot hatchdom in the current Mk7 generation, ahead of the new 2019 Mk8 due later this year.

yes you can turbo a vr6 and not all kits are that expensive. go to kenetic, they make a vrt turbo kit for about 2,500.
The VR6 was developed before turbo technology helped make torquey, powerful four-cylinders with minimal lag and good reliability. In its day, that made the VR6 useful in performance cars, but now, it’s an engine without much of a purpose. Currently, you can’t even get a new VW with a VR6 engine in Europe.
