The upgrades seem to include:
-uprated brakes
-more power
-more downforce
-stiffer suspenson
-better wheels/tires
-optical upgrades

They test the car at VW's own facilities but do the finer adjustments on the Nürburgring.
He says that 265HP through the front wheels can easily be realised these days.

Thats right. He also talks about the 24h Nürburgring being the ideal place and time to present the car, that it took 1 1/2 years to develop it and that it can be ordered in autumn with the car arriving at dealerships in winter. Prices in Germany will start at about 34.000 € with the manual gearbox.
