The 2008 Volkswagen R32 is powered by a 250-horsepower 3.2-liter VR6, the R32 produces 236 lb-ft of torque and mated to a DSG transmission.

The exterior is styled with a uniquely shaped front grille, a rear roof spoiler and deep front spoiler, R32 badging, bi-xenon headlights, twin chrome exhausts and 18-inch alloy wheels and body-colored bumpers, door handles and door mirrors.

One sports vehicle to go down in history--a collector! by 6 shooter on 03/06/2013. Trim: 2008 Volkswagen R32 Base.

Pros: The AWD feature in combo with the great engine is a sports car that satisfies the daily driver and enthusiast requirements all in one package. With an owner's selection of good perfornance tires for summer and winter driving, this vehicle is 100% compatible to a driver who operates in the envelope of 8.5 to 9 as to what is demanded from a great overall sports car. The OE brakes are fantastic, and I will be using the same OE parts on replacement. If one is tuned to driving city traffic with diligence and traffic light observation, they will be able to obtain over 21mpg, as this is what I normally obtain in runs of 10 miles round trip.
Cons: Haven't found anything to date in my four years of ownership
Overall review: The handling, performance, braking etc are on a par for the price of the vehicle, and the AWD is a mighty plus when combined with a good selection of tires to match the vehicle. The size is quite acceptable, and its curb weight is not noticed in perfornance driving--all stays together at the time and mode of execution for the enthusiast without becoming "tight cheeked"!
