Volkswagen is in the process of launching the new 2012 Golf R hot hatch, and what better way to drum up excitement from enthusiasts and get fans engaged than to run a contest. It's called the Golf R Ultimate Fan Experience, and it's going on now.
The premise of the contest is simple: In 265 words or less, tell VW what you love about the Golf R, and why you are the ultimate fan through the Golf R Drivers Forever iPad app. The randomly chosen contest winner will receive a seven-day trip for two to Germany in September 2012 to visit Wolfsburg to tour the Autostadt and Volkswagen AG headquarters. Also included in the prize is a visit to the famous Nurburgring and an opportunity to drive the Golf R with instructions from a professional driver. Winners will also visit Berlin for an exclusive sightseeing package.
Volkswagen knows its fans are passionate, and the Golf R represents the pinnacle of VW's hot-hatch vehicle line. Jonathan Browning, the president and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America, thinks that the Golf R Ultimate Fan Experience contest is a great way to say thank you to the fans for their passion and enthusiasm.
Contest entries are being accepted until May 14, 2012, and the randomly selected winner will be chosen on or around May 28, 2012. You can see all the details regarding the Golf R Ultimate Fan Experience here.
