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.
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?
Here is the latest project from the Hurth-based tuning specialist Sport-Wheels on the VW Golf 6 R. At first, it sounds like the modified Volkswagen Golf would only receive a new wheel package, but actually there is much more. On the exterior, the powerful new ride was fixed up with a sporty themed graphic foil for added protection from CoverEFX. The rims you see pictured are 20-inch OZ Ultraleggera HLT alloys wrapped in high performance tires. The Golfs suspension setup consists of lower springs with an adjustable high-grade steel thread chassis by KW.
The WEITEC car tuners have released a stunning styling kit for the Volkswagen Golf 6 GTI to make it a lot more eye catching. The hot German hatchback received a new full aero kit that consists of many aggressive parts. Included in the package are new front and rear spoilers, side skirts, carbon fiber hood, and if all that’s not enough, then check out the Lambo doors. It reminds me of the popular post we wrote about the high modified Worthersee Golf GTI back in the day. For the suspension, WEITEC went with a new KW coilover kit and custom Sport F springs to lower the car 20 mm. But wait, they still offer better suspension packages if you want to take it to the track.
