478HP VW Golf R Red Devil by Wimmer RS

The name Red Devil was not chosen randomly, as the word "red" refers to the colour of the car, while the word "devil" announces something sinister that is placed under the hood.
Wimmer engineers transform the original performances of the Golf R, a 2.0-liter TFSI which produces 270 hp and 350 Nm/258 lbs-ft of torque, into 478 hp and 610 Nm of torque.
The changes in the turbocharger, ECU, air intake, injection nozzles, as well as exhaust system, produce the extra power .
Performances include an electronically limited top speed of 291 km/h and a more efficient braking system.
The price is likely to be revealed later in the future.

Why Red Devil? The answer is quite simple. The word "red" stands for the color of the car, while the word "devil" suggests the somehow sinister punch that stands under the hood.
At first, in stock form, the Golf R gets out of the factory with a 2.0-liter TFSI producing 270-hp and 350 Nm/258 lbs-ft of maximum torque.
But, these figures are to completely change after Wimmer RS engineers perform their magic job, and the result is 478-hp and 610Nm or 450 lbs-ft.
This extra power is possible due to some changes to the turbocharger, ECU, air intake, exhaust system and injection nozzles.
Information released by the tuning firm says that this upgraded VW Golf R can reach an electronically limited top speed of 291 km/h or 181 mph.
But performances do not end here. They also include a coil-over suspension set and a more potent braking system.
Information regarding the price of this upgraded model has not been presented yet.
