Volkswagen Motorsport India has revealed the race-spec version of the VW Ameo sub-4m sedan, which will compete in the one-make Ameo Cup 2017 series this year.

The Ameo race car will compete in the one-make Ameo Cup 2017 series this year.

Instead of the 1.4L TSI engine that powered the VW Vento Cup car, the Ameo Cup Car gets the bigger 1.8-litre TSI engine that produces 205 PS of power at 6100 rpm and 320 Nm of peak torque between 3200 to 4600 rpm. It is paired to a 6-speed racing sequential gearbox with paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.

The braking system has 334 mm ventilated discs for the front tyres and 232 mm discs at the back, supplemented by Racing ABS. It also has a limited slip differential up front, while the front suspension comes with McPherson Struts and 2-way adjustable KW dampers. For better downforce at the back, the Ameo Cup Car has a large wing mounted on the boot lid.
