This is not the fictional ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, and nor does it comes with a curse included, but the latest upgrade package from the German aftermarket specialists at Siemoneit Racing, who have tweaked the Volkswagen Golf R, turning it into the Black Pearl.

Thanks to a revised ECU, a new in-house exhaust system, a carbon fiber bonnet, and a new air intake, the Volkswagen Golf 6 from the R20 Series is capable of delivering 350 hp and 485 Nm (358 lb-ft) of torque, which represents an increase of 84 hp and 135 Nm (100 lb-ft).

However, those who want to take things even further will be happy to know that this power increase can be even greater - 523 hp - thanks to an intercooler and a high pressure fuel pump. Reprogrammed gearbox electronics “affords faster acceleration, super-rapid gear changes and even more fun at the wheel - whether on the road or on the race track,” as Siemoneit Racing claims.

Moreover, the company also offers modifications to the Launch Control, the rev limiter and the torque limiter on the Volkswagen and Audi platform's DSG and S-Tronic systems. “Equally, gear shift points and gear shift times, as well as a number of other settings in the gearbox control can be altered. All this is necessary, if one would like to permit oneself a personalized improvement in performance,” a company statement explains.

The price list, as released by Siemoneit Racing, is listed below:

ECU Modification: 698€
DSG Modification: 298€
Exhaust System: 1749€
Intake System: 449€
Center Intercooler: 1199€
High Pressure Fuel Pump: 499€
