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.

Volkswagen R GmbH has created different new details for the flagship Golf’s exterior, including the side sills, bumpers, chrome twin tailpipes of the exhaust (left and right of the diffuser), rear diffuser, the bi-xenon headlights’ layout and design, as well as the 18” standard and 19” optional alloy wheels.

Front end

The Golf R stands out, beginning with its front by an all-new designed bumper with extremely ample air intakes, revised radiator grille (with "R" emblem), and newly engineered daytime running lights integrated into the bi-xenon headlight housings. The LED daytime running lights create a distinct twin "U" motif below the twin headlamps.


From its profile, the Golf R is distinguished by a newly styled 18” Cadiz alloy wheels with 225/40 tyres, black brake callipers with "R" logos, side sill panels with "R"-style painted in body colour, front wings with "R" emblems, and matte chrome mirror caps on the door. The automobile is also available with the option of 19” alloy wheels. Volkswagen offers Cadiz wheels in this size. Also, Pretoria wheels are an exclusive option for the 19” format as flow-forming wheels (particularly sturdy and light) in automobile engineering.

Rear section

The rear traits that delineate the new look of the Volkswagen Golf R comprise smoky LED rear lamps with a distinct light-coloured strip down the middle, diffuser with the "R" design, four chromed tailpipes, and an "R" emblem on the trunk.
