The Volkswagen Scirocco is the most stylish hatchback to come from the Wolfsburg design studios, and with a 2.0 Liter turbocharged version scheduled to arrive sometime in the near future, the 21st century Sky Rocket is only going to become even more of a sought after performance machine. But until that happens the British tuner APS has a very green solution for you with their Stage One kit consisting of an ECU upgrade for the TDI powered Volkswagen Scirocco .
The simple and straightforward computer re flash brings the diesel burning boosted four cylinder’s output up to 170 HP and 292 lb-ft of torque for only £499. Being an alternatively fueled vehicle, the TDI Scirocco’s range is unparalleled compared to the future gas powered GTI engined Scirocco. Although the tuned TDI might be down a few ponies compared to the TFSI version but because it’s a diesel it will have way more torque, however getting 55 MPG might just make up the difference.
Press release after the jump.
