Volkswagen Golf VII by Caractere

Caractere has been working on a new tuning program for the Volkswagen Golf VII. And here it is, for you to take a first glance at it. I love what I’m seeing, that’s for sure, but let’s talk about it, shall we?

The Volkswagen was fitted with an aerodynamic body kit that includes a front lip spoiler, revised side skirts and a rear diffuser. You may also opt out for a revised grille, a tailgate-mounted spoiler, a stainless steel sports exhaust system and 18- or 19-inch CW1 light alloy wheels.

On the performance field, the tuner was also busy. The performance upgrades enable the 2.0-liter TDI to produce 208 HP (153 kW) and 410 Nm (302 lb-ft) of torque, while the 2.0-liter TSFI will develop 310 HP (228 kW) and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque. Sounds like fun, and since this is a Volkswagen Golf we’re talking about, it probably is!
