The Golf R already makes a pretty hefty 270hp at all four wheels, that is a lot for a car the size of the Golf but in the wild pursuit of horsepower, there is no such thing as enough. Enter German tuning specialist B&B, for these guys 270hp is considered puny and that’s why they are offering engine mods in different stages, three to be exact.
The first stage bumps the Golf R from 270hp to 310hp, the second to 324hp and the final stage bumps up horsepower to a hefty 362hp. The final stage features a larger turbocharger, a sports exhaust system with a upgraded downpipe and a race catalyst, a reprogrammed ECU, a revised air intake system and a new intercooler.
B&B claims that the 362HP Golf R sprints from standstill to 100km/h (62mph) in just 4.8 seconds and maxes out at 280km/h or 174 mph.
B&B also claims that the final stage lets the Golf R run the century sprint in just 4.8-seconds and maxes out at 280km/h (unlimited). And just to make sure you get to your destination in one piece, the German tuning firm offers a special 8-caliper high-performance braking system, an adjustable coilover suspension with new springs that lower the car’s ride height. The kit also comes with black alloy wheels in 19″ and 20″.
The ultimate Golf? Most likely, if you can handle all that power in such a small package, thank goodness for AWD then.
