OETTINGER has been writing history – and stories since the 1950’s. This includes the latest record drive by the Wiesbadener Martin Garbrecht at the Tuner Grand Prix. With the OETTINGER Golf VII R he laid down a scorching fastest lap in the asphalt. “Catch me if you can“: This is the slogan that the tuner from Friedrichsdorf stuck on the back of the R. The other competitors tried everything, but Martin Garbrecht utilised the 40 minutes that he, together with all the competitors, had to put down one best lap time after another.
Already in his third lap he was 3½ seconds quicker than the next best. The real sensation though, was the 9th. position overall; the Oettinger Golf VII R was noticeably quicker than many tuned AMG, BMW M3 and similar vehicles, and even within spitting distance of many a Corvette or Porsche. “So 2015 could be even more exciting. If there is no real competition in the immediate vicinity then one has to look elsewhere…” was the light hearted comment coming from the Oettinger team in response to the results.
