12sec AWE GTI
Last December, AWE Tuning's Mk6 VW GTI made history when it recorded a 12.26sec quarter-mile pass at Cecil County Dragway. With a trap speed of 115.7mph, it's the second fastest confirmed time for a TSI GTI in North America. And for a daily-driven TSI, there's no other car to match it. Nothing too fancy, the GTI features GIAC software and AWE parts including their turbo-back exhaust, cold-air intake, turbo outlet pipe, front-mount intercooler and boost hose. The chassis uses Bilstein PSS10 coilovers, StopTech brakes and Dunlop Direzza Star Spec tires. For the record pass, the GTI used VP109 race fuel with the passenger- and rear seat, spare tire and floor mats removed. A full weight pass was recorded on 93-octane and produced 12.79sec at 112.65mph.
