What's even better than the new hotness is that is the 296 horsepower, all-wheel drive 2015 Volkswagen Golf R? A Golf R in wagon form, that's what. It's not even for sale in Europe yet, but one Jalopnik reader just caught a totally uncovered prototype running around Tucson.

Here's the tweet with two pictures that came to us from reader Christopher Simons:

It's pretty clearly the new MQB platform Volkswagen Golf in both wagon form and R form. Does it get much better than that? Most likely, the prototype is out there doing hot weather testing.

The new Golf SportWagen, the replacement for the old Jetta SportWagen (which wasn't really a Jetta at all but a Golf, ah, never mind, just go with it) is due out early next year in the U.S.

Will we get the R version of the wagon? I'm not optimistic, but I can hope.

Hey Arizona Jalops – if you spot this car out and about, put some pictures in the comments!
