2015 VW Passat (B8) gets 300 hp from B&B

Article by Christian A., on January 4, 2015

When Volkswagen introduced its all-new Passat B8, everyone was impressed by the vehicle’s 2.0-liter biturbo diesel engine that produced 240 hp and 500 Nm of torque from 1,750 rpm. The engine is available only with a new seven-speed DSG gearbox and with 4Motion all-wheel drive.

Still, if these numbers don’t impress you that much, you better know that B&B can boost the performances of the biturbo diesel engine to an impressive 300 hp and 630 Nm of torque for 3,950 euros.

The standard model is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds, the upgraded engine pushes the Passat B8 from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.5 seconds.

If you consider that 300 hp is way too much for your car, you can get a second power package that costs 1,298 euros and is able to push the total output of the engine to 275 hp and 570 Nm of torque. In addition, B&B also offers a new suspension lowering kit as well as new 19-inch or 20-inch alloy wheels.
