A Class Of Its Own

450-Horsepower VW Golf R Manhart Has Brutal Acceleration

Remember the black and stealthy Volkswagen Golfing R tuned by Manhart? We showcased that warm hatch past month and we’re impressed by the numbers introduced by the German tuner.

Soon after engine Ecu-remapping and including a carbon consumption, Manhart was equipped to squeeze 450 horsepower (336 kilowatts) and 369 pound-toes (five hundred Newton-meters) from its humble two.-liter four-banger – numbers that can match the Audi RS3 and Mercedes-AMG A45 S and far more powerful than the Golfing R420 that in no way occurred.

But how does the boosted Golfing R Mk 7.5 conduct in real lifetime? AutoTopNL has introduced an acceleration test movie of the minimal-output Manhart RS450 and boy it did not disappoint.

With start management in employ, the tuned VW Golfing R does a -one hundred kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) in just three.8 seconds. Looking at that this is a 5-doorway hatchback that appears to be like fairly like a regular black Golfing (besides for the front spoiler lip, custom wheels, H&R decreasing springs, and the subtle system decals), that acceleration rate was spectacular.

Moreover, it did a quarter-mile run for eleven.ninety six seconds. Not also shabby. What is actually intriguing, on the other hand, was that its one hundred-two hundred km/h (124 mph) time was obtained in 9.94 seconds, which, for a 450-hp car, was a little bit shorthanded. A whole lot of viewers of the acceleration test over observed that as effectively – some even imagined that there is certainly a typographical error with the ability output.

But then again, it is what it is. This Manhart-tuned Golfing R is even now an remarkable machine in our eyes and we’re fairly excited to see what the German tuner has in store for the upcoming Golfing R Mk8.

And oh, AutoTopNL also did a best velocity run, achieving 283 km/h (174 mph), which you can enjoy on the movie on best of this web page.
