Volkswagen’s svelte sedan has been turbocharged with over 500 horses to play with.
VW's Passat-based CC (Comfort Coupe) sits somewhere between the stock Passat and the Phaeton, looking the part but somewhat lacking in performance. For its latest project, Erfstadt-based tuner MR Car Design attempted to address the performance side of the equation by giving the four-door coupe a considerable power boost. At the heart of the all-wheel-drive CC is a 3.6-liter V6, and thanks to a turbo and exhaust upgrade, output has increased from 300 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque to a whopping 502 hp and 516 lb-ft.
To handle all that additional grunt, a DDC coilover suspension including a motorized damper by KW was fitted, as were H&R stabilizers and upgraded brakes by Stoptech and EBC Brakes. Putting the power to the tarmac is a set of 18-inch "transparent" Ultraleggera wheels by OZ, rounding out a transformation that turns the CC from Show to Go.
