Chris’ Scirocco project has been one of the most unique and attention grabbing builds to date. The project came about as Chris’ solution to new aerodynamic restriction put in place for the Scottish Saloon Car Championship. The sloping and narrowing roof line allows for a rear spoiler to be placed directly in the air flow over the car while still remaining below the highest point of the roof line. Chris also had significant experience racing EVO’s in the championship, so the combination seemed ideal.
Following a monumental rebuild during 2013 the car now runs our entire EVO suspension component catalogue along with a 4g64 and a Precision turbo delivering power through a Quaife QKE6U sequential gearbox and EVO RS rear end.
Some of the other highlights of the eye catching ‘Rocco are the bespoke alloy front panel allowing for the the quick removal of the the entire front end including intercooler, radiator, oil cooler and headlights for easy access to the front of the engine and turbo. As well as a bespoke set Nitron coilovers built specifically for the application.
To date Chris has completed several successful shakedown and testing sessions with the performance potential being very obvious to all present! This is certainly one to watch as Chris has some very big plans for the car over the next two seasons and knowing him, it should be very entertaining!
