H&R once again debuts an awesome new project based on a Volkswagen model; this year, we’ve chosen the all-new Golf. The 7th generation of this global icon raises the styling bar with its athletic stance, and is the perfect canvas to showcase H&R’s latest in performance suspension components.

– H&R installed a Street Performance Tuner Coil Over suspension and H&R 26mm Sway Bars front and rear.
– Race Technologies, Brembo Partner HP GT system brake upgrade and new design wheels from Rotiform with Michelin tires.
– Complete body styling and center exit exhaust by Volkswagen Genuine Accessories.

The special H&R Street Performance Coil Over provides precise suspension performance for the new MQB chassis. The H&R Coil Over are set at a lowering height of 2.5” front and 2.75” rear for the perfect European stance. The addition of the H&R 26mm Sport Sway bars front and rear adds awesome turn-in. H&R suspension components enhance the look of the Golf 7 and improve performance equaling more smiles per mile!

Popular with Volkswagen enthusiasts around the world, Rotiform wheels were a perfect addition to this year’s SEMA show Golf 7 project. The SNA style wheels are forged 3-piece wheels featuring a concave design. These wheels feature a custom brush finish with matte tinted clear centers, and a brushed low gloss clear lip. High performance Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, size 225/35ZR19, complete the performance handling package of this all new VW Golf.

To take advantage of the performance of the H&R Coil Over system, a Brembo High Performance GT system was integrated into the build. The Brembo GT system’s lightweight 328mm (12.9”) 2-piece disc minimizes the amount of reciprocating mass that the suspension endures, which results in improved vehicle dynamics. Also, a special eye to attention was given to the aluminum bell, which received a special ceramic silver finish. The complete system, with the more rigid 4-piston caliper and Goodridge stainless steel brake lines, provides the notoriously nuanced feel that Brembo brake systems are known for.

Rounding out the high performance braking, handling, wheel and tire package is a complete VW Genuine Accessories body styling kit, center exit rear valance and dual exhaust muffler. The styling package is topped off with VW’s own race inspired hatch top spoiler.
