Forum site uk-mkivs.net has revealed what appears to be the Golf RS on display at an internal VW event. A limited production run of 500 to 900 are expected with the world premiere in Frankfurt or Essen later this year and market launch in March 2008. In addition to the obvious RS number plate, close inspection of the photo reveals custom sport Recaro seats with white inserts and the Thunderbunny Concept body kit which is also seen in the Golf R36 spy photos we showed last week. The biggest question is which engine this fastest Golf ever will receive. Latest rumors on the web as well as from our own sources state a 280hp TFSI engine will be used to reduce weight and enhance driving dynamics - a major criticism of the current nose heavy Mark V R32. However, engineers may not want to stray too far from the popular narrow-angle V6 as denoted by the use of the Passat R36 wheels.
