Just how much should you be prepared to pay for a VW Golf?
Well, car expert Jacob Mashokoa says the new Golf R comes with a whole bootload of optional extras.
And, it's probably the fastest Golf on sale at the moment.
Now they've done an even faster version of the Golf 7.5 R... they've pushed it up to 228 kilowatts.— Jacob Mashokoa, Car expert
The whole vrrrpha mentality comes in here... This Golf R is second to none - it's a car for any person. Any adult, any youngster will relate so much with a Golf R.— Jacob Mashokoa, Car expert
The optional extras include R performance brakes and titanium exhaust.
The titanium exhaust alone is something that gives the car a really nice belly sound and a belly roar.— Jacob Mashokoa, Car expert
But is the complete package worth the price?
People are being charged R676 000... and if you wanted all the extras, you literally are paying around R700 000 for a Golf at the end of the day.— Jacob Mashokoa, Car expert
