The Golf GTI is more powerful than the all paw R. Volkswagen will address this issue with the production version of R400 concept. Some say that it will be actually called the R420. As it reflects 420 HP output. It will be based on the facelifted Golf later his year. According to the recent reports the folks from Wolfsburg cancelled the model. Whether the VW Golf R 420 will be a reality or not that only time will tell. An aftermarket specialist at the O.CT tuning is offering something punchier.
Volkswagen Golf R is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged 4 cylinder engine with 280 pound feet and 300 HP. But now it is increased to 406 lb feet and 450 HP. The O.CT is also offering power packages that will lift output to 505NM/ 395 HP, 480NM/378 HP and 460NM/ 370HP. Still now nothing is known about the performances. You can imagine that the 450 HP version is quicker than the standard VW Golf R. It can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.9 seconds with dual clutch gearbox, 5.3 seconds with manual or optional 6 speed.
The regular version is capped at 155 miles per hour. Guido Sever, the Volkswagen R development chief few years ago said that the unrestricted version can do 168mphThe Tuned version have 50% more power than the standard car. So it should reflect on the hatchback’s maximum velocity. O.CT Tuning said that it can optimize the other members of Volkswagen Group that fits with the EA888 third generation engine. Like the TTS, Audi’s S3 and SEAT Leon CUPRA.
