Volkswagen Scirocco modified by MR Car Design

The Volkswagen Scirocco might just be the next Nissan GT-R. All of you car fans now that the Nissan GT-R is maybe the most common car used for projects by practically all the tuning companies. After the German automaker launched the sporty Volkswagen Scirocco R , now it is time for a tuning company to show what they think a Volkswagen Scirocco should look and drive like.

A tuning company named MR Car Design has presented its newest project named Black Rocco. I can not help to make some comments here. MR Car Design is just a name, there is no ``Mister Car Design`` that works alone to modify cars. I understand that it is hard to choose a name that is original, but I think they could have done better. Also, the name of their latest projects could be quite controversial, as Rocco is a famous porn actor, so to name a project Black Rocco is not the most inspired decision.

Moving back to the car itself, the Black Rocco is wrapped in a matte black vinyl. Some of the most important features of the modified Volkswagen Scirocco include 235/30 ZR20 S1 EVO high performance tires, a full body kit from Rieger which consists of a rear apron with an integrated diffuser that houses the four tail pipes, a front apron and side skirts. The exterior package is completed by 20 inch alloy wheels and red pin stripes.

Performance wise the Black Rocco gets a custom made exhaust system, a heavily tweaked version of the 2.0 liter TFSI engine (210 horsepower stock) that gets a Stage 3 turbo kit, a reprogrammed ECU and a new downpipe. Thanks to all of these modifications the MR Car Design version of the Volkswagen Scirocco has an engine with an output of 382 lb-ft of torque and 370 horsepower.

Other features include new coilovers from KW Automotive, a new limited slip differential and a StopTech high performance brake system. Unfortunately, pricing details have yet to be revealed.
