MANHART achieved the power boost by adding its in-house MHtronik module to the two-liter turbocharged four-pot engine pumping out 290 horsepower, 45 more horses than a stock Golf GTI. More importantly, it also churns out 313 pound-feet of torque, a marginal bump from the stock engine’s 273 pound-feet. The stock seven-speed DSG transmission remains, while a number of other visual and mechanical tweaks have been made to further set this model apart from the stock GTI Mk 8.
