VW Scirocco Coupe Tuned by Oettinger gets up to 350HP
European tuners are starting to warm up to the all-new Scirocco as the first examples of VW’s 3door coupe hit the streets. The latest proposal comes from Oettinger that has developed a subtle bodykit that consists of aero flaps for the front splitter, sill extensions and a rear diffuser that incorporates a new set of exhaust tailpipes. The kit is matched with a set of dark-colored lightweight 20-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the German tuning firm has spiced up the Scirocco with carbon-fiber trim accents, stainless steel kick plates, new floor mats and aluminium pedals.
Just like ABT (click here), Oettinger has fiddled around with the engine electronics raising the 1.4 TSI’s output from 160 to 200HP and the 2.0 TSI’s from 200 to 240HP. The German firm is also working on a specially tuned adjustable suspension and larger brakes along with a new kit that will boost the 2.0 TSI’s performance to 350HP and 470Nm. This power kit will be available by the end of the year.
