Article by Christian A., on April 28, 2014

If you are not satisfied by the performances of the 300 hp VW Golf R 4Motion, MTM has just unveiled the solution for you. Just like on the other cars from the German carmaker, MTM worked its magic and thanks to an M-Cantronic module installed in 90 minutes, the power of the 2.0-liter TFSI engine was boosted to 360 hp and 450 Nm of torque.

The price of the MTM M-Cantronic module is around 2,055 euros. Due to the power increase, MTM also installed 380x34 mm eight-piston brakes on the front, which are priced at 5,115 euros, with fitting costing another 367 euros. In addition, 19-inch MTM Nardo wheel wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 (235/35 ZR 19) tyres were also fitted to the Golf R.

Thanks to the upgrades, the MTM Golf 7 R zooms from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. The vehicle uses the standard seven-speed DSG gearbox.

For those who don’t know, the standard Golf 7 R sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.2 seconds when the vehicle is equipped with the manual gearbox and in 4.9 seconds when using the 4.9 seconds.

Top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. So, if you liked the MTM Golf 7 R, you’d better know that the price for this vehicle is 54,875. You decide if it’s too much or affordable… P.S. You may also want to check the Golf 7 R by ABT Sportsline.
