Sportec presents the SC 200, a 200hp hatch based on the Golf 1.4 TSI. It runs on Superplus fuel and can dispatch 0 - 100 in 8.2 seconds.

The Volkswagen Golf has always been one of the most tuned cars ever. Fans and owners are often quite keen to extract more power from their Golfs than is available to them off the factory floor. In recognising this Swiss-based Sportec has created the Sportec SC 200 which is based on the Golf 1.4 TSI.

At its peak the Golf currently makes 118kW (160hp) and 240Nm. The SC 200, through electronic manipulation, has increased these figures to 147kW (200hp) - the same as the Golf V GTI - and 300Nm respectively. All the pulling power is available between 1,800rpm and 3,000rpm. Superplus fuel which is rich in octane is now required to run this modified Golf.

From 0 - 100km/h the SC 200 will take 8.2 seconds which is 1.4 seconds quicker than the standard vehicle.

A raspier exhaust note is ensured by the Sportec sports exhaust system and the tuner recommends that buyers also opt for the sport suspension and the sports braking system.
