The sixth generation of the Volkswagen Golf GTI has received a power boost from German tuner BBM Motorsport.

Even though the current sixth generation of the Volkswagen Golf is only a few weeks away from receiving a welcomed successor, there still are some tuners focusing on the outgoing model. A recent example would have to be BBM Motorsport that has taken the hotter GTI version of the Golf and made a few improvements here and there.

The German tuners have remapped the engine's ECU and installed a custom exhaust system, all for the purpose of increasing the power output of the 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged engine by 63 hp (46 kW / 64 PS) and 74 lb.-ft. (100 Nm), for a grand total of 271 hp (202 kW / 274 PS) and 280 lb.-ft. (380 Nm).

More power requires a better braking system which is why the tuners at BBM Motorsport have installed StopTech red four-piston calipers, along with a beefed up suspension courtesy of KW. The Volkswagen Golf VI GTI now rides on a fresh new set of 20-inch alloys wrapped around in 235/30R20 rubbers.

CFC-Styling was in charge of covering the car in a matte blue foil wrap, while carbon fiber was used for the hood, rear diffuser and the mirror caps.
