Supercharged and turbocharged, this 1.4l TSI engine comes with 170hp straight out of the factory, but Volkswagen Racing UK and their partners have managed to raise that number to an insane 230hp! And there is room for more according to them. Easter Monday (April 9th) is the big day for freelance motoring writer Nick Trott who will be driving the little monster at Oulton Park in Cheshire. Volkswagen Racing UK Director Sam Roach: "It's been a major technological exercise to prepare this sophisticated power unit for racing and our partners have provided massive support and expertise. To be able to extract 230 PS from a 1.4-litre engine is a major achievement." Press release after the jump
