A modified version of the new Volkswagen Golf GTI generation is bringing some extremely expensive updates, borrowed from a Ferrari 458.
The idea of a hot hatch is all about practicality and some adrenalin jumps and the whole purpose of it is to be used as a daily car, with minor compromises. These vehicles are bought by people who cannot afford or don’t want a true exotic ride but when you are adding some features from a real supercar to such a model, you are changing its hole purpose. This particular Volkswagen Golf GTI, in its seventh generation, has received the expensive carbon ceramic braking from the Ferrari 458. The model in question has been also fitted with the Accuair suspension system, amongst others.
The most important part of the hot hatch is the new wheel set which is also coming from the expensive Italian exotic ride. The rims have been taken from a Ferrari 458 and we have to admit that the overall look of the car is simply staggering. Don’t ask, however, on how much it will cost to transform your own Golf GTI into such a ride because the figures may give you a headache. The regular Volkswagen Golf GTI needs 6.5 seconds to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) and it can go up to a top speed of 245 km/h (152 mph). The 2.0 liter turbocharged direct injected petrol engine is found under its hood and this is rated at 220 HP (162 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque.
