Here are the latest spyshots of the final production prototype of the MK7 Golf. The cars is still under heavy camouflage so most of the detail and styling cues are still under wraps.
However what is interesting in this new model is the brand new MQB chassis that will be shared with the Audi A3 Etc. It will have a longer wheelbase and will also have more aerodynamic features.
The range-topping Golf models will use a new 2.0-liter TFSI Petrol engine with more producing around 240 hp on the GTI and around 310 hp in the Golf R which will be equipped with VW’s 4Motion 4 wheel drive system.
VW accidently gave us our first look at a very early clay prototype of the Mk7 Golf featuring a agressive snout and more steeply raked windscreen through an official video back in 2009.
The MTM tuning engineers have been working on some performance kits for the sixth generation Golf’s.
Drivers of the sixth generation will be spoiled with MTM products, to increase the performance figures.
Four complimented tuning stages, beginning with 270 hp (199 kW) through the remapping of the ECU using code developed on the Hockenheimring.
In its latter stage of tune, MTM reaches more than 300 hp/ps through the modification of the ECU, MTM turbocharger with exhaust tubular manifold and complete 4 pipes exhaust system.
The exact characteristics are 310 hp (228 kW) and a torque of 410 Nm, with a time of 1.16 min realized on the small track of Hockenheim, top speed of about 270 km/h and 5,7 seconds from 0 to 100.
MTM provides the new GTI with 19″ sport rims in new BIMOTO 9-spoke-design which offer enough space for the MTM brake system with 380 mm discs. Last but not least, MTM advises the in-house suspension kit, which lowers the front about 30 mm.
For the ones who are only searching ‘a little bit’ more, they are in good hands at MTM. The 60 hp upgrade compared to the series car and also the 18″ sport rims in the Bimoto Design – available since the beginning of 2010 – enable a first entry into MTM high quality tuning already available from 2800 euro incl. taxes.
Mighty Diesel power. The Golf GTD by MTM. Also for all you Oil Burners MTM also have a power upgrade – through ECU modifications – of 205 hp (151 kW) and a torque of 380 Nm, the MTM Golf GTD is clearly ahead of the series GTD, with an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h of 7,1 s instead of 7,8 s and a more direct torque curve.
For those who are looking for more than a power upgrade, it’s also possible to revert to MTM’s full range of tuning products. Starting with the well-known MTM exhaust system in 4-pipe-optic and 80 mm diameter, over MTM suspensions, MTM sport rims in the BIMOTO design and MTM brake system, the Golf GTD can perfectly provided with. Nobody has to be afraid of the prices: 800 Euro (incl. taxes, excl. installation) for the power upgrade, 1.499 Euro for the 18″ rim set and for the ones who pay an additional charge of 400 Euro even gets a 19″ rim set.
