The Volkswagen Golf R is not a slow car by any means. Powered by a 2.0L TSI 4-cylinder engine making 265-hp with a maximum torque of 258 lb-ft, the Golf R runs from 0 to 62 mph time in less than 6.4 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.
However, German tuning firm Sport Wheels figured it be nice to get some extra power out of the Golf R, making the hot-hatch even a hotter. After a re-calibrated ECU and a custom sport exhaust system, the Sport Wheels Golf R makes 330-hp and a maximum torque of 332 lb-ft.
What don’t we like about the car? If there is anything it would have to be the 20-inch red alloy-wheels from O.Z.
