Performance

  • Cobra 3” Decat Turbo Back Full Exhaust System (Resonated) with 4x 4.7” Oval Tips.
  • Custom Map on ECU making this car 394bhp and 540nm of torque.
  • Custom Map on DSG to reduce the gear change speed down the less than 1/10 of a second and the Launch control was altered to ensure perfect 0-60 times can be achieved.

With all this work being done the car achieved 182mph on the dyno and the best 0-60 I have recorded myself on the roads is 3.42 seconds.
