Wimmer RS has tuned the VW Golf GTI from its standard 155kW (211hp) up to a towering 284kW (386hp) and 455Nm. It can wear shoes of up to 20-inch large.

German-based tuner Wimmer RS presents this stupendous kit for the Volkswagen Golf GTI. Although not a class-leader when it comes to maximum power, the stock GTI nevertheless impresses with how it delivers its 155kW (211hp) and handles itself on the road.

Not entirely satisfied, Wimmer RS went about securing a massive 284kW (386hp) and torque of 455Nm from the turbo unit. They did it by installing an optimised turbo charger with manifold, and using a sports catalytic converter. The ECU, fuel pump, piston rods, intercooler and cat-back exhaust system were also modified. The attainable maximum speed is now 267km/h (166mph), up from 240km/h (149 mph).

A choice of 18-inch, 19-inch and 20-inch rims can be fitted. A special set of 8x20 wheels with Dunlop Sport Maxx GT 235/30 ZR 20 high performance tyres is available as the range-topper.
