VIP madness in Japan
January 29, 2011
If you've been keeping up with our features, 034 Motorsports Time Attack A4 should ring a bell.
Vadim K, our resourcer, recently got in contact with the company and received spectacular news.
Winning the EuroTuner Grand Prix 2009 with their A4, the company had a new project in mind; to build an even stronger and faster car. From numerous cars in the market, it came down to one, a GTI-RS.
First of all, this VW is like no other. Working with a MK4 Jetta during 2006, all the well-thought ideas and mistakes were compiled together and everything started from there on. Last year, the company was able to source a 2001 GTI-RS and the project began.
What's really special and unique about this car?
I don't want to go too much in depth and most of the details can be read on their GTI-RS Proejct Build Article, but how does a Audi 6-cyl Turbo Engine with a Precision GT35R Turbo pulling 6~700HP for track use and with a Precision GT45R Turbo pulling 1400HP for drag use sound?
|The 18x11 wheels are straight off from a Porsche 996 Turbo and the fenders were widened for the track purpose fitment.|
|Another feature we do not see too often is the motor being placed in the trunk. This was done in order to balance the car without a big motor, which is why the Audi 6-cyl turbo engine was chosen. Result? A huge success.|
