We haven't heard much about the Volkswagen Golf R400 lately but a new report is indicating it has been approved for production and will be launched next year.

Citing company insiders, Car Magazine is reporting the production model will follow in the footsteps of the concept and adopt a restrained body kit that features a number of aerodynamic styling tweaks. The car is also slated to feature all-wheel drive, a high-performance braking system and a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops up to 420 PS (309 kW) and 450 Nm (331 lb-ft) of torque.

The car will reportedly debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show and go on sale last next year. Nothing is official but pricing is expected to start at less than €50,000 in Germany.
