This VW Golf Powers Up to 420HP!

Hot Hatch

B&B engineers make a sweet-looking Golf that definitely doesn’t want to sleep.

With a standard 2.0-liter turbo that milks 300 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque from its four-cylinders, the standard Golf R is hardly short on any qualifications for being a very hot hatch. But for German tuner B&B Automobiletechnik, more power is always welcome, and so the company has released a three-stage power-kit to upgrade the 2014 Golf VII R. Stage 1 takes the car to a staggering 360hp and 332 lb-ft of torque through electronic injection remapping and charging air pressure increases.

Stage 2 reduces thermal loads and adds a bigger intermediate exhaust pipe with sports catalyzer, bringing the Golf up to 385hp and 354 lb-ft. Stage 3, making 420hp and 391 lb-ft, adds a bespoke turbocharger and sports exhaust system on top of a modified air-suction system. No numbers are available for Stage 3 yet, but the Stage 2 B&B Golf R is said to make the 0-62mph sprint in 4.5 seconds, down from the stock R's 5.1 seconds.
