B&B gives Golf R 326-hp, 0-62 mph in 4.8 seconds
As if not having the Volkswagen Golf R on the stateside wasn’t depressing enough, tuner B&B has put together a new three-part performance package, giving the hot-hatch more power than it already has.
B&B’s three-part performance upgrades allow the Golf R to produce 310-hp, 324-hp or 362-hp. Details are a bit limited but we do know that the range topping model gets a bigger turbo, a sports exhaust system with a larger downpipe and a racing catalyst, revised engine ECU, a new air intake, a new intercooler and a Slim-Line oil cooler.
All those modifications allow the 362-hp Golf R to go from 0-62 mph in 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 174 mph. Other upgrades include a high-performance braking system, adjustable coilover suspension, a body kit, and 19 to 20-inch wheels.
