About the employer

When you pick up a Scorpion exhaust the first thing to strike you will probably be the light weight; followed very quickly by the detailed workmanship and quality finish of each component part. Every exhaust in the range is an engineering work of art, individually hand built by craftsmen at Scorpion's Derbyshire HQ. Materials are specified and hand picked by the engineers, and each specialist fabrication process is signed off on site- any flaws and the system is rejected and destroyed.
