MR Car Design has a tuning package for the VW T5 Transporter that adds a little 'wanderlust' appeal to this modest people mover.
First off is an ECU remap that bumps the power quotient up to 208 PS (153 kW / 205 bhp) and 487 Nm (359 lb-ft) of torque. Now, the German tuner doesn't say which power plant they're dealing with here but we have to guess that it's the 2.0 liter TDI diesel with an output of 132 kW (179 PS / 177 bhp) and 400 Nm (300 lb-ft) of churning power.
MR Car Design also lifts the V-max lock and adds a new 4-pipe sport exhaust system for the proper 'cool van' sound.
The aerodynamic kit is supplied by Abt Sportsline and features a front-and-rear spoiler, a new grill, fog light inserts and side skirts. The headlamps also get LED daytime running lights.
For the air ride suspension, a lowering of up to 100 mm is offered. Wheels are the 10 x 22-inch TN4 Tomason in black alloy fitted with 265/30R22 tires.
