Scorpion Launches New Seat Cupra Bocanegra System

Scorpion Exhausts, the Derbyshire-based exhaust manufacturer has launched a superb looking half-system for the aggressive new Seat Ibiza Cupra Bocanegra. The new part fits from the centre back and offers genuine performance gains mixed with a vastly improved exhaust note for the 1.4 TSi engine.

The new exhaust has been designed and hand-fabricated here in the UK and utilises T304 57mm Aerospace grade stainless steel tubing and precision CNC mandrel bends to optimise gas-flow and improve throttle response across the rev range.

By being completely interchangeable with the factory exhaust, the new Scorpion parts fit quickly and easily – and by keeping all factory catalysts in place, full legality and warranty conformity are assured.

The exhaust note has been carefully honed to offer a truly sporting tone, without being obtrusive in the cabin.

The entire system is priced at £449.00 including VAT.

Scorpion Launch New Fiat 500 Abarth Exhaust System

Derbyshire based exhausts manufacturer Scorpion Exhausts have launched a superb looking exhaust system for the diminutive Fiat 500 Abarth that offers genuine performance gains and a sublime soundtrack.

The new system, which has been designed and hand-fabricated here in the UK, utilises T304 63mm Aerospace grade stainless steel tubing and precision CNC mandrel bends to optimise gas-flow and improve throttle response across the rev range.

The open-neck downpipe houses a free-flowing 200 cell sports catalyst, providing the perfect balance between full race/road legality and ultimate performance. Sitting so close to the engine, the catalyst also warms up very quickly, ensuring that the car’s emissions stay very close to factory parameters, despite a notable power increase. The exhaust note has been carefully honed to offer a truly sporting tone, without being obtrusive in the cabin.

The centre section has an OEM style flexi-joint to allow for engine movement and the rear back box uses offers a pair of subtly finished 100mm Daytona trims to accentuate the Abarth’s shapely rear.

The entire system is priced at £995 including VAT. This includes the 200 cell sports catalyst. A half system is also available, from the downpipe back,  for just £549 inc VAT.

The system will initially be available exclusively from Forge Motorsport. Click to www.forgemotorsport.co.uk or call the team on 01452 380999 for more details.

Scorpion Release Complete Mazda MX5 Sports Catalyst Exhaust System.

Leading exhaust manufacturer Scorpion has released a superb new exhaust system for the latest generation of MX5. The new design not only offers significant increases in power, thanks to vastly improved gas-flow, but it also retains full road legality thanks to a 200 cell sports catalyst. As the manufacturer responsible for the exhaust on the Prodrive edition Mazda PZ8, Scorpion’s extensive knowledge of the marque is well documented.

Open-top enthusiasts will love the new sportier tone which endows the car with a crisp ‘rasp’ that evokes the original Lotus Elan – the car that inspired the very first incarnation of the world’s best-selling sports car.

The system is available as either a cat back 63mm system, which deletes the second catalyst for  improved dynamics, or as a full tubular manifold system that replaces the entire factory exhaust from front to back. Scorpion’s engineers have taken great care to ensure that the new sports cat is placed very close to the engine block, ensuring rapid warm-up times and highly efficient operation. This results in class-leading levels of emissions, despite the system offering 10-15% power gains across the board. The tailpipes terminate with tasteful twin 90mm ‘Daytona’ stainless trims.

Each system is entirely hand-fabricated in Scorpion’s UK factory and utilises mandrel bending for constant diameter throughout. The manifold boasts a superb looking laser-cut flange to ensure a perfect gas seal – and to aid under bonnet good looks, of course. All components are constructed from aerospace grade T304 stainless steel and carry a lifetime guarantee.

The sports cat manifold costs £699.95 including VAT and the cat-back system £499.95 including VAT.

Scorpion Unleash New VW Scirocco 1.4 and 2.0 TSi Exhaust System

Exhaust maestro Scorpion has released its latest system onto the market; The new VW Scirocco TSI. The Derbyshire-based firm had already released a version for the TDI model last year, so the latest fitment should appeal to the purist petrolhead, covering both the 1.4 and 2.0 versions.

After a considerable amount of road and dyno testing, the new system is available as a direct bolt-on replacement to the OEM part. Bolting directly to the rear of the factory catalyst pipe, the 70mm system is available in two fitments. Either a centre and rear box for those that want maximum extraction with minimum intrusion, or for those that prefer a sportier tone, a Sports bypass pipe is available, leaving just the rear box to handle silencing duties. One of the biggest advantages over competitor’s designs is that Scorpion’s engineers have invested considerable time in studying the flatter profile of the factory rear box when designing theirs. Despite no loss in flow, the flatter Scorpion rear box tucks up into the rear underbody far more neatly than any other aftermarket system, improving looks, ground clearance and the all-important under car air-flow characteristics. This is an element often overlooked by aftermarket manufacturers, but it’s careful consideration is hardly surprising when you consider the wealth of OEM experience that Scorpion has to draw from.

Whilst the fit and finish are certainly as the factory intended, power and throttle response gains are most definitely not! – with consistent improvements of between 5 and 10% being recorded during Scorpion’s extensive testing regime. Also finalised, but still undergoing full Global approval, is the firm’s high-flowing sports cat that will bring significant performance gains whilst retaining full legality in all markets. Expect to see this later in the year.

Each system is precision-fabricated at Scorpion’s UK factory from aerospace quality T304 Stainless Steel and carries a lifetime guarantee. The sound is far more sonorous than the standard item, with a nice growl when pressing on, but keeping a subtle note for comfortable cruising.

Usefully, this box will fit all 1.4 and 2.0 TSI Scirocco models, providing more grunt, more growl – and more grins. Priced at just £418.95 for the single box system and £523.95 for the twin box set up, it’s the first essential modification for any hot ‘Rocco.

Scorpion Fiat Coupe 20 Valve Exhaust. True Thoroughbred Performance

Although many of us hanker after an Italian sports car, penned by one of the great styling houses, for the vast majority of us, our aspirations aren’t matched by our affluence. Thankfully, the Fiat Coupe 20 valve is the Italian thoroughbred for the everyman. Penned by the great Pininfarina and packing enough Roman ponies to induce some pretty brisk progress, they’re the perfect second-hand buy, with even the World’s nicest example only costing a few grand.


As the perfect first upgrade for any 20 valve Coupe, Scorpion’s beautifully made cat-back sports exhaust takes some beating. Each one is hand fabricated here in the UK from Aerospace grade T304 stainless steel and come complete with a comprehensive lifetime warranty covering its impeccable fit and finish. Power gains of between 5 and 10% are very much the norm with a soundtrack that sounds far more like Maranello than Turin..

Best of all, the Scorpion system fully integrates with the OEM parts making for an easy fitment and meaning that it can be upgraded in stages if need be. Although with the back box costing just £195.00 including VAT and the entire cat-back system retailing at just £293.95 all in, it’s almost rude not to do the whole lot.

Whilst you keep checking those lottery numbers for that Ferrari, this is definitely the next best thing!
