It was only a matter of time before the Audi and VW specialists over at MTM got their hands on a Scirocco. The results are what we would expect from the German tuner: up to 272 horsepower, a sporty suspension, better brakes, and handsome 19- or 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin tires. The boost in power comes from a re-mapped ECU combined with a new exhaust system that runs out of a modified rear fascia. The upgraded suspension system includes lowering springs and sport-tuned shocks, and the brakes come with eight-piston calipers with up to 15-inch discs. Full details in the press release after the jump.

The Scirocco remains well-grounded
The high-performance MTM Clubsport running gear (from 1,489 €) which has been fitted in MTM Scirocco renders a better roadholding- and curve behaviour. The road grip is perfect and the driving dynamics significantly improved. The MTM Clubsport running gear consists of lowering springs and sport shock absorbers which allow lowering the car´s front axle by 20-40 mm and the rear axle by 10-35 mm. As a cheaper alternative, MTM offers the specially adjusted chassis springs. Not before long, also the MTM F-Cantronic will be available for adjusting the adaptive chassis regulation DCC.
Best possible brake safety for the Scirocco
Amongst others, vehicle safety is ensured by the 8-piston MTM Brembo brakes with brake discs and steel flex pipes measuring 330x32 mm, 365x34 mm and 380x34 mm. Costs: from 3,462 €. The perforated brake discs which were especially produced for MTM immensely enhance the Scirocco´s appearance with their individually punched design.
Sportive rims „bimoto"
The design is perfected by the rim set „bimoto". The rims which were created by MTM-technicians measure 19 and 20 inches and are available in "shiny silver", "titanium" and "diamond cut". The "bimoto" rims can be bought at MTM, starting at 1,876 €. In addition, MTM offers a complete wheel with the „bimoto" rim "shiny" and sportive tyres by our tyre partners Michelin or Continental (235/35 19) from 3,166.50 €.
