Tuning a Volkswagen Golf GTI is not something that is rare and unusual. In fact, you’ll probably be able to catch at least one tuning kit a week for the sporty hatchback. But instead of an onslaught of mediocre kits for the GTI, we usually just present the amazing programs here on TopSpeed. Hey, that’s what we’re here for, right? And to be true to our word, here is the new tuning kit from Neuss that includes both styling and power upgrades.
Obviously, we are going to start with the most important upgrade in our books: the engine. In its standard version, the GTI delivers a total of 207 HP, but Neuss has changed that by adding a new exhaust system by Eisenmann and an ap-X screw thread. These little changes add up to a power boost that brings the Volkswagen Golf GTI to a total of 265 HP with a maximum torque of 390 Nm.
If the package was just left with the power increase, we would be happy. However, Neuss has taken it just a step further by adding ASA GT2 wheels, which are 8x19 inches in size and sold with rubber tires in 225/35 R19. The Golf GTI also receives a Car HiFi Entertainment System with a full assembly of speakers from Rainbow. This set includes High speakers CAL 27 SILK VOF, Midrange Speakers 100 Vanadium, and a Woofer 165 Vanadium Phase Plug.
Yes, the Volkswagen Golf GTI is no Ferrari, but a lot of us can’t afford a Ferrari anyway so that really doesn’t make a difference. What a lot of us can afford is a Golf GTI, and it’s nice knowing the tuning firms haven’t forgotten about that.
