Automotive Performance Services (APS) Ltd, UK importer for the Sportec range of vehicle performance enhancements, is delighted to confirm the British debut of the SPR1 super car at the prestigious London based Salon Privé event.
The stunning Sportec SPR1 has been carefully created to deliver a high performance driving experience unlike any other, with an emphasis on comfort, refinement and occupant safety, and is designed and constructed from the highest quality materials.
Boasting over 850bhp from its twin turbo power plant, the four wheel drive SPR1 has been clocked at over 235mph at the Nardo high speed circuit in Italy.
60% of Sportec’s strictly limited worldwide production run has already been sold and Salon Privé represents the first occasion that prospective British customers can appreciate the £600,000 SPR1 in the flesh.
Based at the exclusive Hurlingham Club, Salon Privé features the cream of classic and contemporary high performance cars, running from the 22nd-24th July 2009.
Like its predecessors, the new VW Scirocco is once again becoming an object of great fascination for car tuners. The most recent version is now presented by Swiss HighEnd Tuner Sportec: Among other things, the program consists of a performance optimisation, a sports suspension, elegant rims and other generally enhancing engineering components.
For the 200hp and 2 litre gasoline engine, various performance optimisations are available – from 240hp to 350hp. In the top version, the maximum torque takes a giant leap from 280 to 480 newton metres. The gained performance is achieved by the interaction between the engine electronics and a stainless steel exhaust system, a Sportec turbocharger, a charge-air intercooler and the modified fuel system.
A carbon engine cover is the precious gift package for this technical delicacy. The Sportec suspension springs permit significantly improved handling characteristics and transverse dynamics. They not only lower the coupe by 35 millimetres, but are also in perfect harmony with the electronically adjustable shock-absorber system DCC.
The differential lock Sportec has added further enhances the Scirocco’s grip by several degrees during racier trip sequences.
Another highlight: a 20” Sportec Mono/10 wheelset. An extremely light 9×20” spoke rim has been chosen and equipped with 245/30 tyres.
On the inside, passengers may enjoy a 4-part floor mat set made of soft velour and a multi-part carbon interior with Sportec logo.
Therefore, the Sportec SC 350 is not only quick and sporty, but also a seductively sensuous experience.
