Kenwood VW Scirocco
This is where Regal Autosport and KW Automotive came into play. Tasked with improving the performance of the scirocco and installing a new suspension set-up, Regal used a combination of Forge Motorsport, EvoMS, GIAC and KW Automotive products. chassis-wise, they’ve installed a Variant 1 coilover system that does an incredible job out on the road. And the suspension drop works sweetly with the 8.5×19-inch Rotiform BLQ rims. “We wanted to leave no stone unturned for the redesign,” says Mikes, “and it’s great to have such a complete car to take to shows and events this year.”
So, most importantly, what does the Kenwood electronics scirocco sound like? Well, with a choice of SQ or bass systems, you simply can’t fail to love the sound it pumps out. “It’s great for showcasing our product line,” says Mike. “The subwoofers are switchable, so you can run the 8-inch woofers for sQ or the 12-inch subs for gobs of bass.” We’ve had a play with a couple of different Kenwood 2-din headunits and they’re nothing short of perfect. The iPod integration, Bluetooth phone hook-up and on-board sat-nav system absolutely transforms the dash of your car. with so many Volkswagen Group vehicles now ripe for a 2-din upgrade you really need one of these puppies in your car.
The fit and finish is incredible. sound deadening and panel strengthening has been carefully employed to ensure that the sound it serves up is super tight. “Huets really have done a great job,” says Mike. “The car keeps the originality of the scirocco’s interior, but then open the hatch and there’s a whole party going on!” he laughs. it’s a winning combination – Kenwood have managed to shout about their car audio product line whilst keeping things super classy.
