Volkswagen Scirocco R finally revealed

Submitted by on May 20, 2009 – 10:35 pmNo Comment

vw-scirocco-r-01The highly anticipated 2010 Scirocco R was finally revealed by Volkswagen today.

Peek under the bonnet and you’ll see the new Scirocco uses a modified version of the previous Golf GTI’s 2.0-liter engine which produces 265 hp and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. Power flows to the front wheels through either the standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional dual-clutch DSG gearbox. Thanks to this unique setup, the Scirocco R runs from 0-100 km/h in 6.5 seconds (6.4 seconds with DSG) before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155mph).

Volkswagen equipped the R with a variety of upgrades. Among the items engineers included are a lowered sports suspension with more aggressive dampers and springs, an electronic XDS differential and massive 345mm (13.6-inch) front and 310mm (12.2-inch) rear brakes.

As with many hot hatches, VW decided to spruce up the already sexy Scirocco exterior by adding an aggressive front bumper with massive air intakes, LED daytime running lights, new side skirts, a slightly altered grille, and beautiful 18-inch wheels (19-inchers are optional). The sporty styling continues out back as the Scirocco R receives a redesigned rear bumper, a roof spoiler, and darkened tail lights.

The interior also gets a modest makeover thanks to the addition of sporty bucket seats, a redesigned instrument cluster, a flat bottomed steering wheel, and plenty of aluminum trimmings.

The Scirocco R can be expected at European VW dealers this fall.
