Posted in Volkswagen

To enhance the image of the supposed usual car, which couldn’t be shaken off despite intense efforts, the firm MR Car Design from Erfstadt has decided to become the Lord over this performance problem. The all-wheel drive Volkswagen CC, as he is officially called since the beginning of 2012, goes from house with a 3.6-liter V6 engine, i.e. equipped with 300 Series hp at 350 Nm of torque, as well as with all-wheel drive. After an extensive treatment a la HGP Turbo Upgrade GmbH, Ohmden (BW) at the Service Point Cologne (MR Car Design), impressive 502 hp and 700 Nm of max. Torque are available, so perfect conditions for the famous wolf in the even more famous sheep’s clothing! Also the installed exhaust system by MR Car Design had to endure some modifications.
