Introduced VW Up! GTI from Vilner studio

For the German subcompact hatchback VW Up! GTI, tuning studio Vilner, has unveiled a styling “package” that changes the exterior and interior of the car. No technical changes were made. VW Up! The GTI looks more aggressive.

We’ve seen a lot of custom cars from Vilner. It’s usually something pretty exotic, like a Porsche 911 with leather and wood trim, or something more powerful like a heavily redesigned Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. This time the focus is on the cute city car Volkswagen Up! GTI.

In the world of 1000-horsepower hypercars, the subcompact hatchback Up! generally qualifies as a basic transport.

Even in the more powerful GTI, the car only develops 113bhp, but it carries the soul of the original hot hatchback, the first generation Golf GTI, and for that reason has its share of popularity among fans of fast driving.

If it’s Up! The GTI looks familiar because it is almost identical to another redesigned German subcompact city car presented by UK company Milltek. The red and gray graphics on their bodies are exactly the same. The wheels are factory original, but minor additions to the interior complement the traditional checkered trim.

This time, the Vilner studio was only engaged in the modernization of the external / internal appearance of the machine. Thus, its 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine remained intact. It drives the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. The car accelerates to 100 km / h in just under nine seconds.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Land Rover accused the VW Group of stealing technology. Land Rover accuses German VW Group of using patented technologies and is seeking a ban on the sale of some of its crossovers in the United States.
