Joe Achilles currently has a Clubsport to review. It’ll be interesting to see what he thinks of it so soon after having the R.

Interesting result on the dyno compared to other EA888 4th gen cars they've tested.

Backs up how it feels on the road, very similar performance to a TCR, where as all the tests so far say the R feels way quicker than the factory outputs suggest.

I'm not sure he is that keen, it took him 8 mins 10 secs to say it's handling is just "to die for", normally in a BMW review he considerss his mortality within a few minutes? :)

Coming soon - MK8 GTI Clubsport.

I thought he really liked it. Possibly more than the R.

I was joking he seemed keen, but he does use a few pointless phrases like "to die for" in his reviews.

I am not sure with some of these reviews though, looking forward to getting a heavy 5 door Dsg hatchback, on track to try the lift off oversteer?
Really?
I would think it ends at being a more involving B road car than the R ?

I can't remember in the blizzard of performance golf reviews but one of them said about how the R gave you some funny mid corner feeling that was not desirable... Functional yes, not quite what you wanted though. Might have been tr hamza actually... Who knows his vag cars quite well and isn't paid to advertise them.

Sorry, was there a car review going on there?
I was too busy eyeing up the rocks by the barns. I need some big rocks in my life.
