Specs:
- 3.2L VR6 producing 250 HP @ 6300RPM and 237 lb-ft @ 2500 RPM.
- Haldex part-time AWD, defaults to 90% front and 10% rear, maximum is 0% front, 100% rear.
- Twin Clutch 'Direct Shift Gearbox' with Auto, Sport, and Manual modes.
- 18" Omanyt rims w/ tires of size 225/40/R18
- Curb Weight: 3547 lbs.
- $32,990 base price, $35,430 fully loaded (nav)

The U.S. Spec version of the R32 was a limited production run of 5000, all of which were two doors and had the same rims and front seats, unlike the European version which had different options, including full Recaro bucket seats, alternate rims, and a choice of two or four doors. The only three options on the U.S. model were the paint color (in order from greatest to least number produced: Deep Blue Pearl, Candy White, United Gray Metallic, and Tornado Red), MFD2 navigation w/ iPod adapter or a standard VW radio headunit w/ a six CD changer, and a choice of Bridgestone high-performance summer tires or the shittiest Dunlop all-season tires ever created.

Some performance figures:
- MFR claimed 0-60 MPH: 5.8 seconds
- Top Speed: 130 MPH (electronically limited)
- R&T Skidpad Score: 0.85g
- R&T Slalom Score: 65.9 MPH
- R&T 1/4 Mile: 14.6 seconds @ 94 MPH
- R&T braking from 60 MPH: 134 feet

So, what's the verdict here?
