New Performance Pack for U.K. bound Golf R

By Faiming_low on 10 Nov 2017 in New model

Attached Image A new Performance Pack for the facelifted U.K. market Golf R has been launched by Volkswagen. It is available to both the DSG and manual versions of the car.

Attached Image The pack includes an upgraded braking system that shaves 2kg off the standard system, a set of larger 19-inch Spielberg alloy wheels and a new tailgate-mounted spoiler.

Also included in the Pack is an increase of the hot hatch's top speed to 270km/h, up from 250km/h.


Attached Image For those who want more, they can also specify a new exhaust system that complements the Pack. The new exhaust, produced by Akrapovic, features round tailpipes rather than the stock oval ones and comes with a valve control technology that enhances the exhaust sound. It is also lighter by 7kg as compared to the stock exhaust system.

Latest one in Singapore is 290bhp. Still detuned but at least closer to 300.

Well, latest one was a tad bit, @191 K about 11K over the clearance stock unit at 180K. So price to sell. The 2018 units however is asking for 231K. Thats asking alot for the car
