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.
