“Developing and globally retailing 200,000 units in 15 years is a big achievement. Volkswagen R is a small business that employs around 350 colleagues. Everyone in our company contributes to the success of the company. My personal thank you goes out to everyone in the team, but also in the Retailer network, who should take pride in this milestone.”

Sven Schuler, Director Business Development and Digitalisation Volkswagen R.

“The passion of motorsports developed further, and made fit for road use, is what Volkswagen R stands for. Our vehicles are true Volkswagens with that certain extra something which the Volkswagen series production vehicles do not offer. They inspire people with a taste for the extraordinary.”
