With its carbon fibre body 4-passenger sports car interior, turbocharged engine and competition-bred the R GTI is a stimulating fusion of style and excellence, fully modern in and achievement yet staying true to longstanding Volkswagen values as durability and utility.

The R GTI evolved from the stunning R cars that stole the at SEMA in 2005, and the R badge to the powerful R32, one of the most and thrilling Volkswagens ever to from the factory. However, those R concept vehicles last year, which the extremes of performance-tuned Volkswagens, the R GTI a more streetable concept. the R GTI is a one-off and Volkswagen currently has no to put it into production, the dedicated could gather many of the R elements for a personal project, from Volkswagen or from the automotive aftermarket that has keep the GTI’s red badge in the hearts of the world’s driving

Jenkins approached the R GTI with the goal of “speed through That is, reducing the car’s is as critical to improved performance as the engine’s output. In collaboration the firm OSIR Design, carbon fibre component Jenkins replaced the stock front fenders, hood, rockers, and hatch door carbon fibre panels by both OSIR and Jenkins’ team.

Additional carbon fibre are the lower front spoiler, grille surround, rear spoiler and Jenkins-restyled rearview housings, all in carbon fibre. distinctive exterior design include blacked-out front housings, R32 tail lamps smoked lenses, R32-type twin exhaust pipes motorcycle-theme tips, a la Jenkins’ GX3 concept from 2005.

to the GTI’s trademark hexagonal pattern is also seen in the R specially constructed 19×9-inch alloy wheels, with as a crucial contributor to reduced weight, and improved ride and cornering.

In tests, the larger tyre proved to be a valuable ally in the engine’s prodigious 470Nm ft-lb) of torque to the ground.

Despite being rolled out of the design studio on to the track, the R GTI off an impressive zero to 60mph time of 4.8 seconds.

The chief to the R GTI’s impressive performance is the engine developed in conjunction APR, one of the country’s leading Volkswagen tuners. APR develops and high performance, and high only, leaving others to air fresheners and floor mats. engineers and product developers are about Volkswagen technology, and it in the quality and results of their to the powertrain.

It all starts with 2.0-litre FSI turbocharged 4-cylinder an award-winner for its unique combination of injection and turbocharging. APR also the turbocharger with a larger ball-bearing unit with the flow capacity and pumped up the to 21 pounds per square inch All of the pressure-side plumbing was strengthened silicon hosing and a large-diameter black powder-coated intake feeds the big turbo the cool air it from the larger, front-mounted delivering twice the stock air

It’s a factory-like transformation, and the result is a 375 horsepower (280kW), on 93 octane gas. If 100-octane race is used, output rises to 400 horsepower (298kW).

Harnessing kind of power is as important as it, of course, and Jenkins was determined to the stock GTI’s driver-friendly The clutch was upgraded to handle the torque, and a Quaife limited differential was installed to make the power flow more through the tyres. For the suspension called on longtime experts HR to supply a system that be reasonably comfortable when the R GTI was as daily transportation but would deliver crisp, precise when the road gets or for weekend track days. the stock suspension is H&R’s RSS Sport system of coil-over and springs, augmented by a pair of sway bars.

Ride height is reduced 1.5 to 2.5 inches, but despite the ground-hugging and the Club Sport’s stiffer-than-stock the suspension is compliant enough to dampen the rough spots in the
