Volkswagen is set to launch a new specialist department to cater for its hot models.
Volkswagen R GmbH has been created to take over from Volkswagen Individual, and will continue with the development, implementations and sales of Volkswagens hotter models.
The current R portfolio already includes the Scirocco and Golf Rs, as well as the R line design packages.
Ulrich Riestenpatt gt. Richter, general manager of Volkswagen R GmbH, said: "Our vehicles contribute to the emotionalisation and growth of Volkswagen brand."
The new operation, based just outside Wolfsburg, employs over 300 staff.
