“Charged” Arteon needs to obtain 330-horsepower engine.
Volkswagen Arteon R is even more stylish version of the flagship sedan of the German brand, which will also get a significant improvement in performance. These spy images show us a prototype of a novelty which passes the high-speed testing at nürburgring race track. The car is very “light” camouflage, which is an indication that the production version of the car we can show very soon.
Volkswagen engineers used white tape to hide the shape of the bumper. Compared to the existing Arteon in its usual version, the holes of the air intakes in the corners of the bumper have become larger in size. For wheels bronze metallic visible blue brake calipers. The dark color provides good contrast with the white bodywork of this car.
To the rear there is a small black spoiler on the edge of the trunk. The company has masking panels on each side of the rear bumper to hide something in his updated appearance. A pair of trapezoidal exhaust pipes coming out from each corner below the bumper.
Earlier it was reported that Arteon R will receive a new 3.0-litre VR6 engine turbocharged, with a capacity of about 404 horsepower. Now there are rumors that the new model will use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine from the “charged” Golf R of new generation which reportedly develops 330 HP Power will be supplied to all four wheel via a seven-speed gearbox with double clutch.
