The engineers from B&B Automobiltechnik have developed a three-stage power kit for the 2014 Volkswagen Golf R.

The Volkswagen Golf VII R is already a very powerful hatchback with its 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo outputting 300 HP (221 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) but B&B decided to improve these numbers by creating a power kit for the all-wheel drive range-topping Golf. The upgrade program starts out with a stage 1 kit (1,298 EUR) increasing output to 360 HP (265 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) by lifting the charging air pressure and remapping the electronic injection characteristic map.

Up next is stage 2 (3,950 EUR) with its 385 HP (283 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) obtained by reducing thermal load and installing a bigger intermediate exhaust pipe with sports catalyzer. Opt for the stage 3 (9,850 EUR) kit and the output increases to 420 HP (309 kW) and 530 Nm (391 lb-ft) thanks to the tuner's bespoke turbocharger and sports exhaust system as well as a modified air-suction system.

The stock Golf R sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.1 seconds with the six-speed manual gearbox while the stage 2 kit slashes 0.6s. In addition, the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) time is reduced from 19.3 seconds to 17.5s.

Other goodies offered include an oil-cooling system (985 EUR), performance springs (from 298 EUR), stabilizers (from 498 EUR), 20-inch alloy wheels with 235/30 R20 tires along with four or six-piston calipers.

Further details can be found in the attached press release.
