Meet Andrea and her VW Golf GTI V Club Sport Prepped by BBM Motorsport [w/Video]

When it comes to tuners and photo shoots with pretty ladies, 99.9 percent of the times, the girls are professional models who have nothing to do with the cars that they are posing together. Nevertheless, there’s always that one exception to the rule, which brings us to German aftermarket and racing tuner BBM Motorsport and Andrea Friedrich. Apart from being a qualified real estate agent [sic] and having won the Miss Yamaha 2012 and Monster Energy Girl titles, the 23-year-old woman has also obtained an “A” racing license and will participate at events such as the Nürburgring-based VLN and GLP series. Having prepared her Volkswagen Golf GTI V, BBM Motorsport didn’t miss out on the opportunity to showcase Andrea alongside her race-prepped car. BBM Motorsport’s Golf GTI V Club Sport tune entails a series of upgrades starting with the 2.0-liter TSI engine that benefits, among other things, from a new turbocharger, a big double-DIN charge air cooler and a custom exhaust system to lift output from 197hp (200PS) and 280Nm to 331hp (336PS) and 460Nm respectively. The tuner quotes a 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint time of 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 275km/h (171mph). The Club Sport package also brings a KW Club Sport coilover suspension with adjustable strut bearings along with Stoptech brake system with new discs in the size of 355 x 32 mm and 4-piston calipers, while the GTI rides on 18-inch lightweight TEC-rims by ASA wrapped around in semi-slick tires size 225/40-18. The car’s exterior is covered in a matte-teal foil wrap while inside, the rear seat bench was eliminated and replaced with a race-spec roll cage, while up front, is a pair of racing bucket seats. According to BBM Motorsport, Friedrich’s GTI tips the scales at 1,275kg or 2,811 pounds. The complete transformation costs €19,500 (equal to US$25,215), excluding installation.
