The latest offer in this field comes from MR Car Design, which is offering a modification package for the T5 VW Transporter. Since we already told you about our dynamic ambitions, we’ll go over the list of tech mods first.
MR Car Design brags that it offers an ECU remap that allows the driver to enjoy 208 hp and a peak torque of 487 Nm (359 lb-ft). The company doesn’t mention the unit that receives the remap, but we can assume that we’re dealing with the top version of the 2.0-liter TDI oil-burner, which produces 179 hp and 400 Nm (300 lb-ft) when it leaves the VW factory. The unit also gets a four-pipe exhaust system.
Want to hear a good one? The electronic speed limiter has been removed (the new top speed isn’t mentioned). To keep things safe, the tuning company can lower the van by up to 100 mm (!), also installing a set of 22x10-inch TN4 Tomason rims that use 265/30 tires.
The Transporter comes with an Abt Sportsline aerodynamic package that plays with both the form and the function of the vehicle.
