Only a day after Cam Shaft released a program for the soon-to-depart Volkswagen Golf R VI, another aftermarket specialist is giving the VW sports hatch its own distinct tuning program.

Just like Cam Shaft, SchwabenFolia earned its stripes in the industry for its car-dressing capabilities. SchwabenFolia put that to good use on this one, wrapping the Golf VI R with Urban Taupe Matt Metallic foil courtesy of Platinum Wrapping Film.

But what makes this project impressive is the way SchwabenFolia ventured out of its comfort zone to give the Golf VI R a significant bump in performance. Sure, it enlisted a little help from others, but this is still a work of art.

Helping the Golf VI R bump its performance credentials is the installation of a custom, handmade 130 db "Atomic Warbird" exhaust system with a 90 mm downpipe by F-Town Street Machines. This exhaust carries a pair of Capristo exhaust valves, both of which are controlled by the MFA XP in the speedometer. The end result is an increase in pony power to the tune of 330 horsepower, a nice bump from the standard model’s 267 horsepower.

Rounding out SchwabenFolia’s programs is the installation of H&R lowering springs, allowing the Golf VI R to be closer for better handling. Despite its low ride height, this Golf still has room to fit a set of 19-inch Dormant Fire Red High Gloss wheels wrapped in 235/35-19 Dunlop tires under it.

VW is right to call the golf "das autos", shich means "the car". because this one is THE car.

i still think that is good. that means that all those cars are good. or at least, they are with their own goods and bads, satisfying all tastes.

oh yeah! there are so many cars to choose from. if we start counting after-market additions, boy are we gonna have a hard time buying a car!

snow, and that is how it is. if you look only at the factory hot hatches, and you still have a tough choice.

as long as there will be buyers, the car manufacturers will try and out-do one another into making a better car!

yes it is, but it is this competition that gets us better cars for better prices!

they may have been the first ones, but now the competition in this market segment is atrocious!

i think otto is right. they were the first ones to come up with this idea.
