Stade tuning specialist Siemoneit Racing has been working on Volkswagen’s Golf R model, giving it a huge hike in power, to create – what it calls – the ‘Black Pearl’. Even in standard form the R’s four cylinder TSI unit produces 265 hp, but thanks to ECU reprogramming, a new air intake, stainless steel exhaust and intercooler, Siemoneit takes the Golf into supercar territory by releasing 530 hp.

If that’s not enough, the company also offers a tailored program for the car’s DSG transmission, altering such features as launch control, rev and torque limiter points, gear shift times and gear shift points to suite the driver’s preferences.

There’s also a carbon fibre bonnet for the weight-conscious amongst us.
