Renowned German tuner Oettinger, which is also doing business in South Africa has developed a new performance package for VW's Golf GTI.
Oettinger's take on the Golf GTI
The GTI has always been a tuner's dream and Oettinger's latest "Edition 30" gives it some serious grunt too.
It also seems that there are no limits to the GTI's direct-injection engine. Oettinger is offering two different packages to power-hungry GTI fans.
The Stage 1 kit boosts power to 225 kW, while bringing torque up to 400 Nm. The 0-100 km/h-sprint for this version is 6.2 seconds while top speed is 252 km/h.
If you need more muscle, you can opt for the the Stage 2 kit, which swaps out the stock exhaust with a stainless steel sport setup. This version also gets a new intercooler and a carbon fiber "ram air" intake.
Power is increased to 245 kW and 430 Nm of torque, which drops the 0-100 km/h time to 5.9 seconds. Top speed for this model is 258 km/h.
According to Oettinger SA the upgrades will be available in SA later this year.
