Volkswagen Passat CC by Folien Center NRW

Volkswagen is among the most famous car producers in the world. The company is headquartered in Germany, this country being the stage of a continuous battle between brands like Audi, Porsche, Volkswagen, etc. In this battle of the greatest, tuning companies make room, too. Folien Center NRW is a tuning firm also born on German land that works especially on cars made in Germany. Their latest project regards the Volkswagen Passat CC.


A specialist in painting, Folien Center NRW has covered the Volkswagen Passat CC in a high grade Marrakech brown matt paint. This will contrast with the glossy black colour we can notice on the roof, external rear-view mirrors and the radiator grill. To make the model unique, the tuners have applied a 3D “R” shape on the board C column of the car. It signifies the R line bodywork that the vehicle received when it got out of the factory gates.


The good looking picture of the Volkswagen Passat CC is completed by a new set of 9 x 20 inch Nobel wheels that go perfectly with the Bentley Mulliner rims which are designed with black matt stars. A set of 225 30 R20 Nankang NS- II tires makes the package 100 per cent real. The vehicle received a DDC coilover pack that lowers its body and which is specially made for the wheels to work excellent.


The tuned up Volkswagen Passat CC benefits of an engine upgrade from 170 hp (125 kW) to about 210 hp (155 kW). This optimization makes the 2.0 liter TDI engine more powerful and increases the torque to over 400 Nm( 295 lb-ft). The interior didn’t remain unchanged, as Folien Center added a few new elements. The vehicle now has aluminum surface of the R-line package on the dashboard, a centre console and door linings painted in the same colour as the car, an R-line sports steering wheel which is flattened below and an R-line aluminum pedal system. The tuning company’s effort of upgrade the Passat CC is worth praising, as the car is now a more good looking one.
