Sportec SC350 based on the VW Scirocco
Like all classics the Volkswagen Scirocco will never get old, most recently Swiss tuners Sportec have devised a system for upgrading the next generation Scirocco. They are doing this through performance upgrades, the addition of a tuned suspension and a little bit of style.
For the Scirocco that comes equiped with a 200 HP 2.0- liter engine performance upgrades are available from 240 HP up to 350 HP. This is achieved with upgraded electronics, a stainless steel exhaust system, the addition of a Sportec turbocharger, an upgraded intercooler and a modified fuel delivery system. Included in the drivetrain is differential locker by Sportec, this unit will help the Volkswagen to get the power to the ground evenly and improve performance in spirited driving. The Sportec springs lower the new Scirocco by 35 mm and significantly improve the car’s handling. The springs were also designed to work in harmony with the electronically adjustable shock-absorbers.
The Sportec SC 350 is not just a high-performance parts bin, but a well rounded performance machine. Highlighting the car’s appearance are a set of beautiful lightweight 20 inch Sportec Mono/10 alloys wrapped in 245/30 tires. Under the hood a carbonfiber engine cover adds some show to the car’s go, and on the inside passengers can enjoy special floormats made of soft velour and even more carbonfiber bits sporting the Sportec logo.
Like its predecessors, the new VW Scirocco is once again becoming an object of great fascination for car tuners. The most recent version is now presented by Swiss HighEnd Tuner Sportec: Among other things, the program consists of a performance optimisation, a sports suspension, elegant rims and other generally enhancing engineering components.
For the 200hp and 2 litre gasoline engine, various performance optimisations are available - from 240hp to 350hp. In the top version, the maximum torque takes a giant leap from 280 to 480 newton metres. The gained performance is achieved by the interaction between the engine electronics and a stainless steel exhaust system, a Sportec turbocharger, a charge-air intercooler and the modified fuel system.
A carbon engine cover is the precious gift package for this technical delicacy.
The Sportec suspension springs permit significantly improved handling characteristics and transverse dynamics. They not only lower the coupé by 35 millimetres, but are also in perfect harmony with the electronically adjustable shock-absorber system DCC.
The differential lock Sportec has added further enhances the Scirocco’s grip by several degrees during racier trip sequences.
Another highlight: a 20" Sportec Mono/10 wheelset. An extremely light 9x20" spoke rim has been chosen and equipped with 245/30 tyres.
On the inside, passengers may enjoy a 4-part floor mat set made of soft velour and a multi-part carbon interior with Sportec logo.
Therefore, the Sportec SC 350 is not only quick and sporty, but also a seductively sensuous experience.
