Las Vegas-Powerful performance meets luxury in the Super CC performance concept Volkswagen unveiled at the 2008 SEMA show in Las Vegas.

The Performance CC brings a sleek exterior treatment highlighted by black chrome exterior accents, grey pearl paint with custom front and rear bumper, side panels and machined aluminum spoiler. The black treatment continues inside with high-gloss piano black accents offset by matte black graphics. Customer black leather Recaro seats and matching floor mats are highlighted with white piping.

While the Performance CC looks striking, the upgrades will get hearts racing. The 2.0-liter TSI engine has been upgraded with an APR stage 3 turbocharger system with three performance levels. In Full Power mode the Performance CC brings 311 hp and 313 lb-ft of torque; GT mode offers 252 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque; and in Eco mode 222 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. An APR stainless steel performance exhaust system is also included. Key fact to take note of is that in the Eco performance mode, horsepower went up, as well as fuel economy. A production 2.0T CC automatic gets 28 highway/19 city and our CC in Eco mode gets 33 highway, 27 city. Even the full power mode showed a fuel economy increase.

The Performance CC sits on custom designed 10-spoke, 20-inch wheels and high performance 245/30 R20 Yokahama tires with an H&R street coilover sport suspension kit. With all this power to handle, Volkswagen has upgraded the brakes to provide extra power to stop. The Performance CC features 14-inch Brembo brakes with four-piston aluminum alloy brake calipers and 355x32mm two-piece floating cross-drilled rotors with billet aluminum hats.

The Performance CC was designed by the Volkswagen Design Center in California with assistance from APR, LLC (, Recaro, H&R Suspension and Brembo North America.

It appears Volvo hasn't abandoned its love for the aging S60 lineup, and they're introducing some face-lifts to prove it.

At a glance, both of these Integras would appear to be similar but in actuality they are almost polar opposites.

Hard to believe that the BMW 3 Series is 40 years old. It's also hard to imagine a time when the phrase "3 Series" meant nothing.
