Volkswagen Scirocco by HPA Motorsports

How would you like to see, or better yet drive, a Volkswagen Scirocco that can make the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.4 seconds and the quarter mile in 11 seconds? Yes, we are talking about a hatchback here. These amazing numbers were revealed by HPA Motorsport when they announced the Scirocco FT565.

The Canadian tuner announced the FT565 will use a twin-turbo 3.2 liter V6 engine with an output of 550HP and a peak torque of 813 NM (that’s more than impressive considering the most powerful Scirocco develops a total of 200HP).

Besides the engine upgrade, HPA Motorsport will also offer new brakes (to handle stopping that excessive power) and 19" wheels.

Why they would put that much power in a hatchback astounds us too. The Volkswagen Scirocco even outperforms the Ford Focus RS500 , the newly unveiled BMW 550i xDrive Gran Turismo , and the Audi A3 Sportback . Looks like soccer moms will be adding some speed to the dropoff.

Stay tuned for more details.

4wd is easy enough on the A5 chassis as the floor is exactly the same for two and four wheel drive as it has independent rear suspension. Should be able to bolt up the complete four motion rear axle.

The HPA Scirocco accelerates like the wind it’s named after, hitting 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and the quarter mile in 11.4 sec. at 122.7 mph

Dang! the new render of golf GTI was based here in scirocco.

Ford focus rs500 is still the best HB car in the motorsport, next to Subaru Impreza and VW Golf.

I’m gonna go with a big NEIN on the $150 grand, really fast, better-looking, GTI. Exclusive or not, we’re about 70-80 grand away from Earth.

Looks more aggressive than the AR- Guiletta, but i like the stance of golf GTI more than the scirocco.

In terms of looks, I place my bet on the VW, but in reputation and performance I’ll pick the Focus RS500

hmm amazing isn’t it? It even out-performed the famous and sold out Ford Focus RS.

Well, we all know that the GT-R is a muscle car buster for sure the Scirocco can’t keep up with the GT-R. even in stock mode.

I wonder if it is fun to drive a scirocco with a 550 Horses under the hood. It even surpases the HP of stock GT-R but i doubt that It can outrun a GT-R.
