From their beginnings in the 1930’s and now part of the VAG group Volkswagen have grown to be one of the world’s largest car manufacturers. Initially focusing on affordable family cars including the iconic Beetle all that changed in 1976 with the launch of the Golf/Rabbit Mk1 GTI one of the first hot hatches and a real game changer. Following on from the GT’s immense success the early 2000’s saw the launch of the first of their high-performance R models the Golf 4 R32. It was only natural that one of the very first performance exhausts Scorpion produced was for the GTI back in the early nineties and they’ve continued to be one of our most popular models to date.
Constructed from premium T304 stainless steel, the new cat-back system features 50.8mm/2″ pipework for greater flow rates when compared to the OE exhaust.
The innovative cat-back system includes a centre silencer, link pipe and trim connecting pipe. At the rear of the system, increasing the up!’s sporty profile is the popular 90mm Daytona tailpipe which can be selected in a polished stainless steel or black ceramic coated version.
Not only is the new cat-back system aesthetically pleasing, dyno and road testing showed an increase of over 6 bhp backed with a sharper throttle response as well as a weight reduction of 3 kilos.
