Red Devil is the name German tuning firm Wimmer RS chose for its latest take on the Volkswagen Golf R. The word 'Red' is selected because of the color for the car. The word 'Devil' represents the sinister punch under the hood of the Golf R.

In stock form, the all-wheel drive Golf R rolls out of VW's factory with a 2.0-liter TFSI producing 270-hp and 350Nm of maximum torque. After Wimmer RS's engineers perform their magic, those numbers increased to a whopping 478-hp and 610Nm. The extra power comes from a variety of modifications including but not limited to changes made to the turbocharger, ECU, air intake, injection nozzles and exhaust system.

According to the tuning house, the upgraded Golf R can reach an electronically limited top speed of 291 km/h. Additional performance enhancements include a coil-over suspension set and more potent braking system. The German tuner did not release info on pricing.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
