Superchips, the world leader in engine management tuning for over 20 years, will be featuring a VW Golf diesel racing car on its stand at The Sunday Times Motor Show Live, NEC, Birmingham, May 27-June 6. The car, the only Golf Mk V diesel racing car in the world, is owned by Volkswagen Racing, to whom Superchips is the official tuning partner. Superchips also sponsors the Volkswagen Racing Cup, in which the car competes.
As a long-standing tuner of both petrol and diesel Golfs, there is no more appropriate car to demonstrate Superchips' skills than a TDi version of VW's recently launched Mk V Golf.
"We can usually obtain the greatest improvements with turbo diesel engines, and for VW's latest 2.0-litre Golf unit we can achieve increases in excess of 30 bhp and 50 lb ft of torque," said Ian Sandford, Managing Director of Superchips.
Superchips regularly takes part in the UK's key automotive exhibitions, and this is the company's biggest stand yet at the main motor show. It will contain a second car, as yet undisclosed, as well as full details of the company's 700-plus other conversions for cars and vans. For the last three days of the show, the Golf will be replaced by a VW Polo rally car, also tuned by Superchips with a gain of over 40 bhp.
Based in Buckingham, Superchips boasts a nationwide network of 85 dealers, as well as a fleet of mobile units capable of carrying out conversions at customers' homes or places of work.
