The new Golf has been on the market since the end of 2019. And although VW has completely detached its compact electric car in the form of the ID.3, electrification also plays a major role in the eighth generation of the classic bestseller. Several versions have different levels of electrical assistance, with the top, as before, being the Golf GTE with plug-in hybrid drive, which has been available since summer 2020. Not least because of its dynamic design and sporty look, this is a perfect basis for tuning projects. This example proves this, which Urban Motors equipped with a set of high-quality alloy wheels from Barracuda Racing Wheels. The team from Eschweiler, near Aachen, installed the Project 3.0 wheels from the Ultralight Series, which are very light thanks to the flowforming process, on the axles of the compact class.

They measure 8,5 × 20 inches and have 235/35 tires and a black milled finish. The milled edges of the spokes are wrapped in blue - so they go perfectly with the factory color accents of the GTE and the also partially blue, individual wrapping that Urban Motors applied to the gray body. A supplementary lowering should of course not be missing at this point. The Golf got a KW Variant 3 coilover kit, which reduced its ground clearance by around 45 millimeters and promises even more dynamic handling. Upon request, Urban Motors can also offer performance enhancements and other tuning components in addition to the work carried out on the vehicle presented.
