Well I did say if the Japanese tuner cars video performed well I might consider creating one for European and American tuners. Well here’s the European version. I want to thank my Instagram followers for suggesting some of the cars featured on this list, and if you’re following me yet we’ll go drop me a follow that way you can participate when I need suggestions. Real quick guys before the video begins, give me a few seconds, don’t click away. Some of you have been asking when will I release merchandise for the channel well that time is now. I partnered with Bonfire to create limited time only merchandise in celebration of 50K subscribers here on Vehicle Virals.It’s so common to find all my viewers arguing in the comment section about which car is better, which inspired me to create this design “All Cars Matter”. Essentially diversity for cars. I worked very hard to make this happen and I hope you all like it. Link will be in the description section below if you’re interested in supporting the channel by purchasing something. The merchandise will only be available for 10 days and then it’s gone, so if you’re interested act fast. First European tuner car on the list is the Volkswagen Golf R32.When you think of Hot hatch it’s almost impossible not to think of the R32. Straight from factory it came with a lowered suspension, beefier brakes, deep front spoiler, bigger rear bumper and equipped with twin exhausts. Performance delivery is one of it’s strong suits. It’s not what the R32 does, but how it does it. Unlike the modern turbocharged Golf R the R32 comes equipped with a 3.2L VR6 naturally aspirated engine. And for those that weren’t aware yes, it carried a V6, a 15 degree v angle for space saving. Fully stock it produces 240HP and 236lb-ft of torque, which pushes the R32 from 0-60 in around 5.8 seconds. Back in 2004 that was amazing, as a comparison moden Volkswagen GTIs performs about the same 0-60. The R32 definitely was ahead of it’s time and made all that power without being turbocharged. Which explains why so many owners are able to get so much out of this hatch by adding a turbo or supercharger. Add the fact that torque is available almost from idle and remains strong all the way to it’s 6500 rpm redline.They say classics live forever, and this hatch is definitely iconic. It was only available in the United States for on year, and now , well it’s a classic. Only 500 units were shipped to the U.S making the R32 hard to come across. And if you do manage to find one, I’m almost certain you won’t find it stock. untouched, well preserved ones are practically museums pieces, garage queens, you know the ones owners feel guilty driving.Modern Golf Rs are also great tuner choices as they do come turbocharged, allowing you to unlock power at a relatively low cost. Next car is the Audi B5 S4. The slightly spicier version of the first generation A4. First available in Europe before making it’s way to the US a few years later. For whatever reason us Americans always seem to get some of the best performance cars late. My guess is that the S4 didn’t meet the strict federal emissions regulations enforced here in the US. Sure the S4 has lots of potential tuning wise but prepare to show it some attention. The S4 does not handle neglect very well. Honestly, it’s not that difficult. Just spend all your time and money on it and you’ll be fine. All jokes aside the S4 is one beast of a car. For many Audi Enthusiasts there is no car more iconic than the S4. Upgrade the small K03 turbos for the K04s used in the Audi RS4 and the motor can handle anything you throw at it thanks to it’s The 2.7L twin turbo V6 that came with forged internals from the factory.With just the turbo upgrades it’s not unheard of the S4 making 480HP with completely stock internals. If you’re not looking for supercar slaying power you can leave the engine untouched and go for a more budget option. A stage one tune that can yield lots of power within a matter of minutes. You’ll be able to get an additional 65HP and the best part it won’t require additional supporting modifications. This is indeed one of the best german tuner cars of all time right next to it’s competition at the time the e36 BMW M3. Which one would you rather own? Next car is the Volvo 850 T5/T5R. Sure, slaying a super car with a fast car is cool and all, but doing it with a car that has no business going fast is so much sweeter.In other words, if you’re looking for sleeper that has massive tuning potential, well then look no further. The Volvo 850 T5 is the perfect choice. And honestly they aren’t too hard to come across since when Volvo designed them with a lifespan of 500K miles in mind. It’s no secret old Volvos were built to last. Performance wise the 2.5L turbo engine found in the 850 T5 produces 225HP while the T5R produces slightly more HP. Volvo doesn’t typically tune their vehicles to maximize performance, which is where the tunining potential comes into play. Keeping the stock turbocharger equipped with the T5 you’re able to get around 300HP with proper tuning. But many owners advise against that since you’ll be pushing the turbo to it’s limit as it can only handle up to 15 psi’s and will wear out much faster. If you’re looking for an insane sleeper then upgrading the stock turbo to the 18T or 19T turbo is a must. Combine that with the large amounts of aftermarket tuning parts available for the 850 T5 and the sky is the limit. Choose the modifications wisely and you can easily have a supercar chaser.Some of you might remember the reactions the 850 Wagon got during the British Touring Car Championship, 2 of them were entered into the race. You can see them taking curves on two wheels, You know Volvo was just going for attention with this stunt. 4th european tuner car is the BMW 335i (N54 engine). And for those that haven’t been around since the beginning of my channel, I actually own an e93 BMW 335i myself. So of course I’m being biased by including this car on the list. Kidding, Well not really biased, the truth is the BMW 335i is bursting with tuning opportunity.Popularity has grown in recent years for the 355i platform since they are so much easier to find at an inexpensive price. Whether you decide to go with the earlier models equipped with the N54 engine or the later N55 model you’ll be able to get big HP gains with minimum effort. A simple stage 1 JB4 piggyback tune can get you nearly 100HP with stock internals. Think about that for a second. The 335i already comes stock with 300HP and 300lb-ft of torque and for less than $500 you can gain an additional 100HP? Sign me up! Take it a little further by installing a bigger intercooler, downpipe, charge pipe, a dual cone intake along with a stage 2 tune and you’ll be well in super car performance territory. I personally know some tuners pushing 700WHP, which I tend not to take a ride in since I don’t want to die.Unlike other high end performance sports cars where reliability can be an issue when it comes to finding replacement parts the N54 engine found in the BMW 335i was featured in many other BMW Vehicles starting from year 2007, making replacement parts much more accessible and fairly inexpensive.I might start modding 335i soon and introducing it to the channel. Maybe like a transformation series, let’s what I do. Let me know in the comment section below if that’s something you guys would love to see. Next car is the Saab 9-3 Aero, I believe it’s the fastest accelerating car Saab has ever built, correct me if I’m wrong. It’s engine does produce some impressive power. It carries a 2.8L turbo 6 that produces 250HP and 250lb-ft of torque. The best part about the torque is that it peaks at a relatively low rpm giving the driver massive pulling power across all all speed ranges.And just like Volvo, the engine equipped in the 9-3 Aero is heavily under utilized and it appears to be able to handle much more boost then it comes with. A J2W or Vtuner stage one tune can get the 9-3 aero to 320HP and 409lb-ft of torque. That’s a gain of 70HP and 151lb-ft off of a simple tune that’ll only cost you a few hundred bucks. But of course I’m sure I speak for most car enthusiasts when I say we want more! Well at least that’s always the case when you modify your car, increasing performance becomes addicting.Upgrade the instake, injectors, turbo, clutch, downpipe and mid pipe and you’ll havel more power than recommended for a front wheel drive car, as torque steer starts to become an issue. Over 400HP to be exact. You’ll have that while still looking stylish. I personally like the look of the 9-3 Aero, it has a design that doesn’t resemble those of other cars. It’s a shame Saab doesn’t exist in the Automotive industry anymore, I really do think if they made a return they would do quite well. 6th and final European tuner car is the R56 Mini Cooper S. I’ll get this out of the way first. Straight line speed wise It’ll be extremely hard to get a Mini Cooper to keep up a with a supercar but when it comes to tuning one specifically for handling, it can compete.This well engineered car was re introduced by BMW back in 2001 and surprisingly sold very well. It was perfect for those that wanted a car that was very fun to drive while being packaged with retro style design. Unlike the Copper S released before 2006 the R56 ditched the supercharger in favor for a fuel eficient turbocharger that surprisingly produced more power. The R56 Cooper S came equipped with with a 1.6L 4cyl turbo engine that produced 173HP and 177lb-ft of torque. While that might not sound like a lot, remember the Cooper S is a very small car, that feels like a go cart when driving. There is one thing many owners do complain about the cooper S, and that is that it makes a terrible car for long distance driving because of it’s tight suspension tuning from factory. Can you imagine how much worse it gets once you decide to tune it? Anways if you like retro looking cars, well the Mini is one of the best, and it’s arguably one of the most fun cars to drive from this list.Remember guys if you’re interested in purchasing my limited time only merch, link will be in the description.
