2008 SEMA: Volkswagen Super CC Performance Concept

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 25, 2008

The latest addition from this year's SEMA Show is the Volkswagen Super CC Performance Concept , a vehicle based on the Passat CC. As you can see the vehicle is way much better than the standard Passat CC and features a special grey pearl paint, a completely redesigned front bumper, new side panels, a stylish rear trunk spoiler and a new rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and the APR stainless steel performance exhaust system featuring two rectangular tips.

At the interior the vehicle comes with a new set of Recaro sport buckets and a black treatment with high-gloss piano black accents offset by matte black graphics. Under the hood, a big surprise!

The standard 2.0-liter TSI engine found also on the Golf GTI, has been boosted using an APR stage 3 turbocharger system with three performance levels. With the new system installed the engine is capable to deliver in the Eco mode 222 hp and 320 Nm of torque (236 lbs. ft. of torque), 252 hp and 363 Nm (268 lbs. ft.) of torque in the GT mode and an impressive 311 hp and 424 Nm (313 lbs. ft.) of torque.

Due to this numbers a new H&R street coil over sport suspension kit was installed for better stability at high speeds. Also the new custom designed 10-spoke, 20-inch wheels fitted with high performance 245/30 R20 Yokahama tires improve the stability and the handling too.

Of course, the car has to be able to stop in time in order to avoid all kind of obstacles and in order to do this the vehicle features 14-inch Brembo brakes with 4-piston aluminum alloy brake calipers and 355x32mm 2-Piece Floating Cross drilled Discs with billet aluminum hats.
