VW Golf R boosted to 246kW by Sport-Wheels

You couldn’t exactly describe the performance of the Volkswagen Golf R as sluggish, but that hasn’t stopped brazen German tuning firm “Sport-Wheels” from further enhancing the performance credentials of VW’s hottest hatch.

The tuning shop has taken output from the standard 270-horsepower and 350Nm of peak torque to 330HP and 450Nm. Getting that much more power from the R wasn’t hard and all it took was a recalibrated ECU as well as a custom sport exhaust system for the car’s 2.0-litre TSI engine.

A sport suspension and lightweight 20-inch alloy wheels from O.Z. cloaked in 235/30 R20 tyres are also included in the package. For those who want to go against the subtlety of the Golf R and shout out how badass it really is, then ‘Sport-Wheels’ also offers an optional loud decal set.
