app-vw-scirocco-3If you want something really different and outstanding from the average tuned car out there, then this little number is just for you.

APP Europe have partnered up with Rieger Tuning, KW Automotive, Wimmer Rennsporttechnik, CFC and MR Car Design to put together a unique street racing version of the VW Scirocco 2.0 TSI. Normally the 2.0 TFSI delivers 200 horsepower, but APP Europe and its partners have tuned the ECU combined it with a sports exhaust system pushing the horsepower all the way up to 261HP. Torque is also hiked from 280 Nm to 380 Nm increasing the maximum speed of the VW to 264 km/h.

Rubber is in the form of a set of 19-inch, 3-piece bi-colour alloy wheels featuring Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta high performance tires. To keep them from wearing too quickly they also added a limited slip diff and updated the DSG’s software.  Braking power is greatly improved with 4-pistons and two-part slotted discs sized 355×32 mm and a set of coilovers to complete the package.

Rieger have provided the awesome bodykit which includes a front apron, side skirts and a rear apron with an integrated diffuser. Source: leblogauto
