450-Horsepower VW Golf R Manhart Has Brutal Acceleration

Keep in mind the black and stealthy Volkswagen Golf R tuned by Manhart? We showcased that incredibly hot hatch last thirty day period and we’re impressed by the quantities presented by the German tuner.

Right after engine Eu-remapping and including a carbon consumption, Manhart was able to squeeze 450 horsepower (336 kilowatts) and 369 pound-ft (five hundred Newton-meters) from its humble 2.-liter 4-banger – quantities that can match the Audi RS3 and Mercedes-AMG A45 S and far more powerful than the Golf R420 that hardly ever took place.

But how does the boosted Golf R Mk seven.five carry out in genuine life? AutoTopNL has launched an acceleration take a look at movie of the confined-manufacturing Manhart RS450 and boy it did not disappoint.

With start management in hire, the tuned VW Golf R does a -one hundred kilometers per hour (sixty two miles per hour) in just 3.eight seconds. Taking into consideration that this is a five-door hatchback that looks quite like a typical black Golf (except for the front spoiler lip, customized wheels, H&R decreasing springs, and the delicate physique decals), that acceleration fee was impressive.

Also, it did a quarter-mile operate for 11.ninety six seconds. Not too shabby. What is intriguing, nonetheless, was that its one hundred-two hundred km/h (124 mph) time was achieved in nine.94 seconds, which, for a 450-hp vehicle, was a little bit shorthanded. A good deal of viewers of the acceleration take a look at previously mentioned observed that as well – some even imagined that you will find a typographical error with the electricity output.

But then once more, it is what it is. This Manhart-tuned Golf R is nevertheless an outstanding machine in our eyes and we’re quite fired up to see what the German tuner has in retail store for the upcoming Golf R Mk8.

And oh, AutoTopNL also did a prime speed operate, reaching 283 km/h (174 mph), which you can look at on the movie on prime of this web site.
