Not-so-secret confession time: I love the Volkswagen Golf R. In fact, I always have. And now it seems that Volkswagen is sweetening the deal on its hottest hatch, with recent creations like the Golf R 400 concept (a showcar reportedly headed for production) and now this, a longroof Golf R Wagon, just caught testing on the Nürburgring.

This Golf takes everything I already adore about the normal R – a 300-horsepower turbo-four and a superb 4Motion all-wheel-drive system – and adds the family-and-stuff-friendly capability of the SportWagen bodystyle. Sure, this more capacious shape will likely add some heft to the R's curb weight, but I can't imagine it being anything short of hilariously good to drive.

Assuming this thing is headed for production, it's not totally likely that Volkswagen will bring the Golf R Wagon to our shores. But I can dream, right? Or, I can always hop a flight to Europe...
