Back in April at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, Volkswagen introduced the Golf R 400 Concept a.k.a. the most powerful version of the Golf and now everyone is waiting for the production version. Still, if you don’t want to wait until the hot hatch arrives, Oettinger offers you’re a 400 hp version of the current Golf VII R.

Set to make its official debut at the 2014 Worthersee GTI meeting, the Oettinger Golf R comes with a larger turbocharger, a completely new exhaust system and some modifications brought to the engine management.

As a result, the 2.0-liter engine delivers 400 hp and 500 Nm of torque (369 lb-ft). For those who don’t know, the standard engine of the Golf R generates 296 hp and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque, and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds, when using the dual clutch gearbox (DSG) and has a top speed of 250 km/h or 155 mph.

The Oettinger Golf R zooms from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 4.0 seconds, while top speed is 280 km/h or 174 mph. If you consider that this is way too much for you, Oetting also can bring your Golf R to 360 hp or 380 hp, you decide.

Regarding the design, Oettinger also improved the Golf R with a new front spoiler, new side sills, a rear skirt with integrated air diffuser and exhaust system and a new roof spoiler.

The design is completed by the 19-inch Oettinger rims, but for those who want to be noticed the tuning company offers 20-inch wheels.
