Volkswagen Golf VII Gets Light-Tron Treatment [Video] [Photo Gallery]
Take the best looking, most well built family hatchback on the market, slam it to the ground and make it look like something out of a science fiction movie. Now that, gentlemen, is the formula for success in this day and age.
This is the work of two awesome tuning companies from Austria, Low-Car-Scene and BlackBox-Richter. They started with a Golf VII 3-door powered by the 1.4-liter TSI turbo engine with 140 PS. With Cylinder on Demand, it's already an impressive cruising machine, sipping fuel at a reduced rate, but that's not enough to make it a Tron light vehicle.
Large diameter 20-inch ally wheels made from three pieces and costing €6,000 ($8000) a set are the very first step of the transformation, followed closely by an air ride system costing another €3,600 ($4,700).
That very sexy new front bumper is a reworked version of the R-Line trim for the Golf VI. The project is pulled off by deleting the front emblem and rear wiper for a cleaner loo.
