German tuner offers three stages of tuning on the anniversary edition of the Golf GTI that can take output up to 362 PS (266 kW / 357 bhp) and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque.
German tuner B&B is offering 3 stages of tuning on the anniversary edition Golf GTI that can dial output up all the way to 362 PS (266 kW / 357 bhp) and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque.
That Stage 3 tuning job will set you back €8,950 but will make the VW Golf GTI Edition 35 good for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of just 4.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 278 km/h (173 mph). All that is done by means of some serious engine work which includes adding B&B's own turbocharger.
The tuner also offers beefier brakes, a suspension lowering of 30 mm and 19- or 20-inch wheels.
But there are cheaper options on hand here too for what is still a decent boost in power. Stage 1 actually comes in two guises - taking the VW Golf GTI Edition 35 from 235 PS (173 kW / 232 bhp) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque to either 280 PS (206 kW / 277 bhp) and 375 Nm (277 lb-ft) or 310 PS (228 kW / 306 bhp) and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque.
Stage 2 comes in at 326 PS (240 kW / 321 bhp) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.
