Maybe the better question is what stock exhaust is that and what engine does it normally pair up to? Maybe they are trying some motor that has been in a Golf and had to throw an existing exhaust on?

I like it, ride height is perfect. Don't care for the mesh on the lower front grill, also need some sort of front lip or valence.

I'm assuming Its still a test mule, I mean, look at those long tips!
This! There's a thread about this already on the "TEX" vortex. This is prematurely speculation as this is not a complete build and vw will most likely tweak out some of designs as it gets closer to the launch date.

definitely too "plain" a wrapper so far, hoping it's a mule.... I do like the evolution of the shape though, I'll be watching closely to see what the US is offered and which direction I want to go by then.....into an "R", or into a GTD if it comes!!!

This crearly is a test mule, doesn't even have side skirts... I remember I lol'd when I saw the test mules for the MK6 R...
By the "civilized" the looks of the MK7 GTI, and the likely 300hp powertrain on the R (from new S3) my guess is the final body for the R will have that aggressive theme and will be designed around a 3 door then adapted to 4.

Seeing that test mule now makes me wonder when they will roll it out. Historically VW and Audi always wait until the last model year for the good stuff.

Who knows at this point. But its a good assumption to believe it'll be roughly two years after startup in keeping with the trend.
