The upgraded version of the German hatchback boasts acceleration to 100 km / h in just 3.8 seconds, as well as a top speed of 283 km / h. This is exactly what enthusiasts removed from the AutoTopNL YouTube channel.

  Remember the black and inconspicuous Volkswagen Golf R, the modernization of which was taken up by specialists from the tuning studio Manhart? We wrote about this “hot” hatchback last month, and we were impressed with all the changes that were made by the German tuner.

After reassigning the electronic engine control unit (ECU) and adding a carbon intake system, the specialists at Manhart were able to squeeze 450 horsepower (500 Nm) from a rather modest 2.0-liter four-cylinder car. These power and torque figures may well correspond to the high-performance Audi RS3 and Mercedes-AMG A45 S.

 But how does the 450-horsepower Golf R Mk 7.5 show itself in real life? AutoTopNL team released a video showing the acceleration of the Manhart RS450.

   Thanks to the launch control function (launcher control), the VW Golf R by Manhart overcomes the first “hundred” in 3.8 seconds. Particularly impressive is the fact that in appearance it is a fairly ordinary version of the five-door hatchback, which looks like a regular black Golf, with the exception of the “lips” of the front spoiler, another set of wheels, H & R springs and a couple of stickers.

 Moreover, the car was able to overcome 402 meters in 11.96 seconds. However, it is intriguing that its acceleration speed from 100 to 200 km / h takes 9.94 seconds, which is 450 hp for a car. is a very quick result. And, in addition, AutoTopNL also accelerated to a maximum speed of 283 km / h.
