The Type R minced the Golf GTI!!!!!

Of course it did, it is a track car for the road after all.

It's also got about the same power but is a LOT lighter than a Golf.

Track times aren't everything you know [:I]

Anyone know exactly how many secs the Golf was slower than the Civic?

How run in the engine on the GTI was compared to the Civic?

Still rather a brand spanking new Golf GTI than a CTR though...much more desirable car.

It was more than a second between them. They didn't give any info on the car with respect to mileage etc.

Big surprise for me was that the 210bhp Works Cooper S was slower than the Golf. It was on heavy 18" runflat tyres though. I think the Golf looked like it was on the 17's.

the music through the test was from the massive attack score to a film called Danny the dog. AKA Unleashed.

There was also some Depeche mode remix and a track called Hymm by Craig Armstong (who's work was used again later in the test with a track from the plunkett and maclean soundtrack).

They use alot of Craig Armstrong /Rob Dougan on Top Gear.

P.S. Hi I'm a Newbie Who now Really wants a new Golf GTI
