The car tuners from McChip have released a new performance kit for the Volkswagen Golf R recently. Several upgrades were made including styling improvements and engine tuning. The VW Golf R received a new set of springs from H&R to lowering the ride height, and a wheel package made up of 19-inch OZ Ultraleggera wheels wrapped in high performance Michelin Pilot Sport Club tires was installed. Pricing for the suspension springs is only 350 Euros, while the new rims and tires go for 3,190 Euros. But more important were the upgrades that McChip performed under the hood of the Volkswagen Golf R.
In the shop, the McChip tuning firm updated the car’s engine management system and tweaked the ECU. This resulted in a 45 horsepower gain out of the hot VW German hatchback. From the factory the Volkswagen Golf R comes with 270 hp and 350 Nm of torque. After these upgrades the modified Golf R now produces 315 horsepower with 440 Nm of torque. This decent jump in power is priced at 899 Euros, and McChip says the extra power doesn’t affect the DSG gearbox on the Volkswagen Golf R.
