Volkswagen revealed today the R version of the Scirocco sports car. Based on the Scirocco GT24, the R version adds - compared to a standard model - large air intake openings in the front bumper, integrated front spoiler, bi-xenon headlights, roof edge spoiler, a striking shining black diffuser, the chrome tailpipes of the dual exhaust system and 18" alloy wheels.
Volkswagen Scirocco R is powered by a four-cylinder 2.0 l TSI engine that delivers 265 PS and 350 NM of torque. The engine is mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or a DSG one. The sprint from 0 to 62 mph will be made in about 6,5 seconds, while top speed is limited to 155 mph.
The car will make its first debut during the 24- hour race at Nurburgring. Sales in Europe will begin in September.
