The Volkswagen Passat CC is quite the luxury car. It’s not quite in the level of a Mercedes or a BMW , but as far as receiving premium amenities are concerned, this German luxury sedan carries a lot of them.
But even with its good standing, you can’t deny that there’s still room for improvement.
That’s where FolienCenter-NRW enters the picture. The German tuner has made our pages before, most recently when they upgraded the Audi TT to impressive levels.
Well, the tuner’s follow up to that is no less impressive, even though the program was built specifically for a customer. We love the matte chocolate brown color that FolienCenter-NRW used on the Passat.
Plus, it’s got a pretty significant performance boost that’s impossible to just brush aside and ignore. Interior upgrades are also part of the program, which means that FolienCenter-NRW spared no expense in building a comprehensive program for the Passat CC.

Matte is always in, fellas, and when FolienCenter-NRW decided to give this Volkswagen Passat CC a matte brown chocolate wrap, it didn’t take us long to jump on board. Certainly, adding gloss-black accents on the mirrors and grille help too. More importantly, the matte brown treatment also extends to the interior, particularly on the dashboard, the center console, and the doors.
FolienCenter-NRW also installed a new set of 20-inch Bentley Mulliner wheels and wrapped them in Nankang NS-II rubber. 20-inch wheels on a Passat? Yeah, we like that, too.
Arguably the most impressive thing about this program was how FolienCenter-NRW managed to improve the output of the Passat CC to impressive numbers. This model carried a 2.0-liter TDI, which meant that output only reached 140 horsepower. But thanks to an optimized ECU from SKN, output improved to 210 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, good enough to presumably hit 0-to-60 mph in a little under 10 seconds with a top speed of around 125 mph.
