Oettinger refreshes Volkswagen Golf GTI hot hatch design without looking under the hood


The German tuners decided not to upgrade the Volkswagen Golf GTI’s powerplant as their colleagues are doing, focusing on the appearance of the popular hatchback.

The new generation of the “charged” hatchback Volkswagen Golf GTI debuted over a year ago. During this time, he more than once became the object of attention of tuners. DTE specialists were the first to redesign this car, increasing the power of the hatchback’s native engine to 301 hp.

The guys from RaceChip also took on the performance of the 245-horsepower two-liter TSI, but the German tuning studio Oettinger decided to stick to a different concept. There are no changes in the engine compartment, but outwardly, the hatchback has noticeably changed.

The car has received a new front splitter, rear diffuser and a spectacular roof spoiler. All of these parts have been tested in a wind tunnel and are as easy to install as factory accessories.

Therefore, in the very near future they can be found in the Volkswagen accessories catalog and at the partners of the brand.

Stylish double-spoke wheels in bright red complement the look of a prettier hatchback. The German tuner plans to release a series of updates for the new Golf R.

Previously, AutoTimesNews said that the Tesla Model 3 electric sedan tried on a new design from an independent artist. The electric car began to look more modern and sleek.
