Milltek Sport Launches Polo GTI System
As a true master of the art of VW Group performance exhaust systems, many enthusiasts have been looking forward to Milltek Sport’s release of its entirely-new performance system for the VW Polo GTi. The good news is, it’s now here, and looks set to equip VW’s latest hot hatch with higher levels of both sonic and dynamic ability.
The new car is one of many vehicles that uses a Gasoline Particulate Filter, and Milltek will offer a fully EC approved system to fit behind this for enthusiasts that are looking for a subtle enhancement in tone, whilst staying well within the confines of both warranty and legislation.
All systems are designed and hand-finished in Milltek’s Derbyshire factory, using the highest grade of aerospace quality, non-magnetic stainless steel – and a plethora of both robotic and artisanal techniques to create a system that looks and sounds like a factory option part.
As well as this most warranty-friendly of designs, Milltek will also be offering both sports catalysts and de-cat options once the company’s road test programme on these models has been completed. These will replace the OEM catalysts and GPF, promising dramatic improvements in flow rates, combined with a useful aural enhancement. Expect to see a few horses liberated along the way as well!
No less than five different trim options will be available allowing owners to match, contrast or accentuate their tailpipes to suit the coachwork and look of their Polo. All are based on the popular and stylish GT90 trim and come in a choice of Cerakote black, polished, brushed titanium, burnt titanium and carbon. No excuses for not perfecting the look of your GTI, then…
Whichever system you opt for, Milltek’s extensive R&D protocol on both road and dyno ensures that the resulting system delivers a crisp, attractive note, without ever droning or resonating on long motorway drives. Check back on the Milltek website to see when each new configuration is being launched.
System prices start at £561.42 + VAT (GPF back – polished trims)
