German tuning house Manhart has sprinkled its tuner magic on the eighth-gen VW Golf GTI. In true Manhart tradition, the Golf GTI 290 has an upgraded 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.
Manhart has yet to divulge the performance numbers.
