News and rumors about the Volkswagen Golf R coming to the states has died down for sometime now. However, our friends across the pond have been enjoying its presence since January. Seven months in to the scene and a fair share of tuning shops have had their way with the Golf R. Starting with 266hp, Sport-Wheels increased it to a 330hp beast or bull as they call it.
Sport-Wheels tuning company in Cologne nicknamed the new Volkswagen Golf R, “The Bull”. The power has been increased to well 330 hp and the suspension system has been updated for a more rigid and responsive behavior.
The 20-inch alloy wheels ULTRALEGGERA HLT by Italian Company OZ can be customized with black, silver, red finishing (standard finishing is available in Crystal Titanium, Matt Graphite Silver, Gold Race); the tires are of size 235/30.
The HLT technology couples lightness and resistance, necessary to pass the strictest tests. The HLT wheels (High Light Technologies) are developed with highest technologies derived from the experience gathered in F1 racing and in the main world racing events. Thanks to channel coating it is possible to obtain technical characteristic similar to a forged wheel, increasing drastically resistance, with a consequence reduction of the weight of the wheels.
VW’s potent new R is the quickest Golf ever. With 266bhp and four-wheel drive, the subtle R aims to provide devastating all-weather performance in a practical shell. The Golf R is supremely competent, more powerful and environmentally friendly than its preceding model Golf R32.
