With the sixth generation Volkswagen Golf GTI already available for sale in Europe, German tuners are readying a horde of goodies with the enthusiast in mind. Following ABT's recently revealed sport package, MR Cardesign form Erftstadt is the latest German firm to apply its tuning knowledge on the Golf GTI VI. First up is an engine kit that includes an ECU upgrade which lifts output from 210HP and 280Nm of torque to a punchy 260HP and 380Nm.
The additional 50HP and 100Nm helps reduce the GTI's 0 to 100km/h (62mph) sprint time from 6.9 seconds to 5.8 seconds while the hot hatchback's top speed is increased from 240km/h to 263km/h or 164mph.
In addition to powertrain upgrades, MR Cardesign offers a sport suspension from KW that lowers the car by 50mm up front and by 40mm at the back, along with a high performance brake system from Sportech and 19-inch alloy wheels shod in Vredestein tires size 225/35 R19. Customer may also opt for a more sonorous sport exhaust system.
