The New UP! GTI from Volkswagen is a fantastic package straight from the factory. It features a 1.0 TSI 3-cylinder engine which puts out a sharp 113 bhp backed up with 147 ft lb of torque. The power, shared with a tight chassis and just under a ton of weight makes a perfect match.
Scorpion’s R&D department wasted no time in getting stuck into designing a new cat-back exhaust system for the GTI which adds to the vehicles overall enjoyment.
The innovative new system features 50.8mm / 2” T304 stainless steel pipework and is offered as a resonated configuration. The centre silencer has been internally designed to output a stunning, deep soundtrack which is sportier when driven enthusiastically but not overly loud for day in day out driving or motorway cruising.
With performance in-mind, Scorpion technicians designed the system to be ‘freer flowing’ than the restrictive original exhaust. After testing, the Scorpion cat-back has proven to increase the GTI’s power to almost 120bhp with a much more responsive throttle. The system also compliments the vehicles weight with a reduction of just over 3 kilos.
The UP! GTI may only be small, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t look the part. To enhance the overall appearance of the little pocket rocket, Scorpion is offering the cat-back system with a 90mm Daytona tailpipe that can be selected in a polished or black ceramic finishes.
