Redline Speed Worx is Proud to Introduce You to the VW Golf R of all .:R's !
We were estatic when our good customer John Williamson decided he was going to purchase a 2012 VW Golf R. This is not the first vehicle we have had the priveledge to build with John, and we knew from the previous work the Golf R would be the best of the best !
A little bit of back story before we begin, John previously had a fully loaded VW Mark 5 GTI. He worked with us to take the vehicle to the max. The GTI was quicly fully modded with APR Stage 3+ TSI turbocharger system as well as upgraded connecting rods, a full clutch upgrade as well as an upgraded limited slip differential.
Before John had even taken delivery of the new Volkswagen he began sending us emails with all the trick European OEM goodies he had been sourcing for his new toy. Upon taking delivery he wasted no time, within weeks he had already installed a complete top of the line all wheel drive Bag Riders digital air ride system. Not to mention the SUPER rare European Golf R / Recaro racing seats, European body panels and lighting components both front and rear.
John then brought the Golf R on the long trip from Cape May to the only guys he trusted with his baby, US ! He knew we were going to be able to pair the right performance components to the build to allow him to reach his power goals. Immediately the VW had its ECU upgraded with APR Performance Software, APR Performance High Pressure Fuel Pump, APR 2.0T FSI Intake System, as well as a full Milltek Catless Valved Turboback Exhaust System. Additionally we must mention John's supreme attention to detail he took it upon himself to find a powder-coater that would be able to provide him with gloss black exhaust tips to match his soon to come HRE Wheels!
As one of the Tri-State's Premier HRE Wheels distributors we worked closely with John to build two custom sets of HRE Wheels. The plan was to build a set of wheels that allowed for that perfect fitment, "stance" was what we were after and we think we hit the mark with HRE and John. The Gloss Black lips and Matte centers were the perfect compliment to the bright Rising Blue paint on the Golf R.
We had a great season this year (2012) with John and his Golf R, but for John it is time to move on. He came, he saw, he conquered the scene ! He already has his next VW on the way, you wouldn't believe it but John has on order currently a 2013 VW Tiguan. I'm sure your thinking to yourself why in the world would he be getting himself a family truckster ? Well the build plans have already begun and lets just say the new mini SUV will be on par with every other one of John's VW's !
This picture just proves ALL minds were blown with this beautiful JohnnyR32 / RS Worx build !
