Auto Finesse MK8 Golf R Big Detail



Published
Another week at the Academy, and this time its the turn of the MK8 Golf R, and this one is no show pony. Used from new as a development car by our friends at Regal Autosport, this MK8 R has been put through its paces, on track, on long road trips and spring events, in all weathers. Now its about to put us through our paces as we set about attempting to make this well-used example look as good as new.
