MTM has created its own versions of the Volkswagen Golf VI GTI and GTD models. MTM, which is based in Wettstetten, Germany, has had a wonderful time tinkering with the GTI. MTM was able to take the GTI up to 310 hp (228 kW) with some ECU revisions and its own MTM turbocharger. There are three other ECU-tuning packages available, which start with an upgrade to only 270 hp.
The 310 hp GTI by MTM comes with 410 Nm of torque, a top speed of 270 km/h (168 mph) and a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of 5.7 seconds.
On the other hand, the VW Golf GTD gets a power boost up to 205 hp (151 kW) and 380 Nm of torque. That brings its 0 to 100 km/h time down to 7.1 seconds from the standard model's 7.8 seconds.
MTM also offers for the Golf GTI a set of 19-inch BIMOTO 9-spoke wheels, MTM brake system (380 mm discs), MTM's quad-exhaust system, and its in-house suspension kit that can lower the front of the GTI 30 mm.
The GTD is also offered with an MTM (quad) sport exhaust system, MTM suspensions, brake system and sport rims. For the GTI, tuning prices start at €2,698 (including VAT) for a 60 hp boost and 18-inch rims.
For the GTD, you'll need to pay €800 for the power boost and the 18-inch rims cost €1,499, but for €400 more, you can get the 19-inch ones.
