Golf R POV Video - Winding Road




For those of you who don't know, I do the videos for the Winding Road Magazine YouTube channel. Last week I spent a day in the Golf R, my first time behind the wheel of one. I thought I'd share this one. Enjoy!

BTW, I'd recommend wearing a good set of headphones for the POV Test Drive part of the video. The audio in this video was recorded with binaural microphones that, when played back through headphones, give the feel of 3D sound with pretty true-to-life sound quality (though I'll let you Golf R owners be the judge of that). Trick stuff.

Feel free to share your own Golf R videos here too. Cheers,
Chris

Awesome audio quality! I put headphones on and it sounds like I'm sitting in the back seat of the R!

The audio is so immersive that I actually caught myself looking over my shoulder while you were merging on the freeway.

I wasn't interested in the Evo portion at the beginning, just wanted to see what the R could do.

Great vid. The microphone you were using must have been some high quality mic.
The whole time I heard that B-Pillar wind noise just like how I do in my car...
