Volkswagen tuning information with articles and pictures about modified Volkswagen cars for Volkswagen tuning enthusiasts.
The tuningexperts at Oettinger have released their latest project on the VW Golf R. With a larger turbo, exhaust system and ECU tuning they are able to boost the power output to 400PS or 396 horsepower. From the factory this 2.0-liter turbocharged engine puts down 300PS or 295 HP, so this is quite an increase for a car its size. With the modifications it can now sprint from 0 to 100 km/h or 62 mph in less than 4.0 seconds while reaching a top speed of 250 km/h or 174 mph.
The tuners at Oettinger have sent us this image of their new package for the Volkswagen Golf GTI. Up front we notice a new aero kit consisting of a front splitter and spoiler. New side skirts, a rear diffuser and rear spoiler round out the exterior kit. Focusing on performance next, Oettinger installed a larger intercooler, air intake and sport exhaust system underneath.
One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen when it comes to car wraps has been done to this Volkswagen Golf MK7. With the use of a special phosphor-foil 3M wrap, the tuners at Low-Car-Scene and Blackbox-Richter have made this Golf go from white and pink during the day to green and black at night. This foil wrap is the next great invention for car tuning and we can really see this taking of, but doubt the DMV will approve of your car being two different colors depending on the lighting outside.
German tuning company ABT Sportsline has released the “Last Edition” version of the Volkswagen Golf VI GTI Mk6 at the 2012 Essen Motor Show. They have two performance stages for this sporty hatchback, starting off with ECU tuning to increase the 2.0-liter turbo engine output from the factory 208 HP to 256 horsepower. Stage 2 for the VW Golf GTI offers a new turbocharger to the boost the figures to 306 horses.
From the factory, the Volkswagen Passat CC or simply known as the Volkswagen CC holds a 3.6-liter V6 engine producing 280 horsepower in North America and 295 HP in Europe. Tuning company MR Car Design figured this wasn’t enough for enthusiasts, so they developed a package to boost those figures and have the car reach its full potential.
Several popular tuners have released their concept images of packages for the all new 2014 Volkswagen Golf. These include ABT Sportsline, MTM and Oettinger offering unique styling and performance upgrades. Starting off with ABT, they have put together a complete kit featuring a front apron, grille, light accents, mirror covers, side skirts, rear apron and integrated diffuser. Tuning under the hood came next, but don’t forget that these new Golf engines are severely underpowered from the factory.
Typically when cars and girls come together for a photo shoot, the ladies are just trying to get their name on the map and don’t really have a connection with the car. There is one exception to this theory, which brings us 23-year-old Miss Yamaha 2012 and Monster Energy Girl Andrea Friedrich. She has received her “A” racing license and will participate in upcoming events such as the GLP series and Nürburgring VLN in this BBM Motorsport tuned Volkswagen Golf GTI V.
ABT Sportsline has released a new tuning package for the diesel version of the all new Volkswagen Beetle. The German tuners have tweaked the 2.0-liter TDI four cylinder powerplant to now produce 168 horsepower and 370 Nm of torque. A plentiful increase from the factory 138 HP and 320 Nm of torque. Results show a new 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of 8.8 seconds, stock time was 9.4 seconds.
With the popularity of the VW Transporter T5 vans, we knew it would only be a matter of time before someone came up with a great idea. British company Doubleback has put this VW T5 into production that turns it into a mini motor home. With the press of a button, the rear slides out and nearly doubles the interior space. An elevating rooftop gives you the room to stand inside, while a kitchen area holds a 50-liter fridge with icebox. The only thing holding back this VW Transporter Doubleback is the expensive price tag.
The German car wrap specialists at Car Film Components aka CFC, have taken this Volkswagen Golf VI GTI to whole new level with some interesting car tuning. First off, the small sport hatch was wrapped with a matte grey vinyl car wrap, while the roof and mirrors received new carbon fiber pieces. A unique comic-like strip was placed on the front fenders, GTI logos, fuel cap, and inner part of the front grille for an extra customized appearance. Rounding out the body modifications are a new carbon fiber kit consisting of a front spoiler, side skirts, and rear diffuser.
A new package for the Volkswagen Golf V R32 has been released by tuners at MR Car Design. This was a joint operation with BTS-Racing and the final product is quite impressive. Under the hood, the engine received a R32 HPG turbo kit along with a reinforced DSG transmission to handle all the extra power. After the performance tuning was completed, the car now produces a stunning 465 PS and 550 Nm of torque. However, this wasn’t all for the highly modified VW Golf R32.
At the upcoming Geneva Auto Show, ABT Sportsline has put together a nice little package for the Volkswagen up! They will also have the new Volkswagen Beetle on display along with an Audi A6 Avant and Q3 crossover SUV. It comes right on time for this Geneva Salon event, that goes together with the Frankfurt Motor Show showcasing some of the best cars throughout Europe. On the exterior you will find an interesting graphic design to go with the new spoilers. This transforms the outside while the tuning company focused on producing more power for the other vehicles.
