CFC Adds a Lot of Ponies and Even More Color to the Volkswagen Golf GTI

German tuners were never shy to experiment with strange color combinations, even though most of the times, the results are questionable, to say the least.

CFC, which is short for Car Film Components, is a German firm that specializes on vinyl wraps but it also offers complete tunes. In its latest project, CFC has reworked a Volkswagen Golf GTI.

The hatchback’s body is covered in a matte grey vinyl wrap, with the roof and the exterior mirror caps finished in carbon fiber, and the passenger side front fender, the GTI logos, the fuel cap and the inner part of the lower front grille featuring a comic strip-like wrap.

The car also gets tinted rear windows, a carbon fiber body kit comprising a front lip spoiler, side skirts and a rear diffuser, and…pink-colored fog lamps.

All these parts come together (?) with a new set of 19-inch alloy wheels that are available in either pink or red shades and are shod in Hankook EvoS1 225/35R19 tires.

Inside, the only upgrade concerns a high-end and very expensive at €10,000 / US$13,000, audio system from MK SoundStyle.

On the performance front, the GTI rides on a lowered suspension with APX AP coilovers and H&R stabilizers, while MR Car Design’s power kit lifts the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine’s output from 210PS (207bhp) and 280Nm to 270PS(266bhp) and a thumping 400Nm. It also gets a high-performance braking system.
