MTM Scirocco-R

Those Teutonic lunatics over at MTM have been hitting the boxfresh VW Scirocco with their silly stick. It's not quite as balls-out obscene as their twin-engined Audi TT, but nevertheless looks to be pretty damn spectacular. Colossal brakes, 20in alloys, quad exhausts and a frankly barmy 380bhp. Mmmmm, torque-steer.

The standard 2.0 turbo is rated at 200bhp... it'll be interesting to see how they manage to almost double the power just by tweaking the ECU and upgrading exhaust/induction. Methinks there's more to it than has been announced - keep an eye out for MTM's official specs, which presumably will list some sort of gargantuan turbo from a spaceship.
