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.
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.
The German tuning company MR Car Design has released this Volkswagen Eos for the girls out there looking to hook up their ride. This “Girlz Style” kit goes over the top with Swarovski rose colored stones outlining the wheels which have been wrapped in Dunlop tires. Behind the rims you will find pink painted brake calipers, while a unique suspension package drops the VW Eos up to 50 mm. Under the hood is a 1,400cc turbocharged powerplant that connects to a new pressure-optimized stainless steel exhaust system holding 85 mm tips.
Fresh off the dyno, Hofele Design released a fancy tuning package for the new Volkswagen Touareg II called the Royal GT 470. It features a few styling parts including the modified fascias, revised grille, and wheel arch extensions. A stainless steel exhaust system was installed, as well as an electronic lowering module to lower the light SUV up to 40 mm. We’re not too sure about the chrome alloy wheel choice that the tuners went with on this Volkswagen Touareg, however they are available from 20-22 inches and wrapped in high performance tires.
The new 2012 Volkswagen Beetle is sure to be on many tuning companies list when it debuts on the showroom floors in September. It sort of reminds me of the Porsche Panamera when looking from the side, but it is said this design came inspired from the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, which was performed by VWvortex. Either way it is definitely a better look for the Beetle RS, since most of the owners of the previous model were female. It now carries that long lost swagger to attract the male tuning crowd and all the dedicated Volkswagen enthusiasts.
