Oettinger Boosts the VW Golf R

Thursday, May 15th, 2014:

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.

Day and Night Difference: Glow in the Dark VW Golf MK7

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013:

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.

VW T5 Transporter Doubleback Is A Great Idea

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012:

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.

Custom VW Jetta

Custom VW Jetta

At the 2010 Waterfest event this year, Volkswagen surprised tuning enthusiasts with the latest custom tuned VW Jetta. Already fitted with several parts from the Volkswagen Accessories catalog, the all new 2011 Jetta received a new front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper, rear spoiler lip, and a black wheel package. When looking at the exterior styling, you will see similar traits of Audi lineage in the design, but mostly in the rear design and taillights. As we speak, the media is now testing the 2011 VW Jetta, which I’m sure we’ll have some interesting reviews once Volkswagen launches their ad campaigns. This custom tuning also shows the fact that there are some die-hard fans of Volkswagen of America, capable of modifying any new car they can get their hands on.

MTE VW Golf IV R32

MTE VW Golf IV R32

The VW Golf IV R32 is an older model loved by many as the perfect tuning project. With a sure surplus of fans, this car has been one many have pushed to gain every ounce of power. The latest in the challenge, the German tuning specialist MTE, gave their Golf R32 IV a mean military-themed camouflage look to fit their BiTurbo2. With the stock R32, you might expect a 3.2-liter V6 pushing 241bhp with 320Nm (236 lb-ft) torque. After the tuning team over at MTE made a few upgrades and adjustments, they were able to achieve 790hp and 1,200Nm (885lb-ft) out of the Volkswagen Golf. That’s about 500hp more than MTE’s BiTurbo1. How you might ask?
