The Volkswagen Passat CC has always favored style over substance, so MR Car Design decided to fix that by turning the four-door coupe into a true driver's car.

Starting with a pre-facelift model equipped with all-wheel drive and a 300 HP (221 kW) 3.6-liter V6 engine, the tuner installed an HGP Turbo upgrade package which enables the mill to develop an impressive 502 HP (369 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 202 HP (149 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft).

The tuner also added a KW DDC coilover suspension, H&R stabilizer bars, Stoptech and EBC brakes as well as 18-inch OZ Ultraleggera wheels.

The end result is described as "pretty decent" which is modesty at its finest.
