As part of an automotive manufacturer’s vast list of responsibilities they must pick and choose what cars they want to sell in what markets, unfortunately sometimes this means that certain regions are deprived of some outstanding automobiles. In this case we are talking about the Volkswagen Scirocco, the VW sports car hasn’t been sold in the U.S. since 1988 and is currently a dedicated Euro only model.

However like most things in car culture, leave it up to the aftermarket to make the impossible come true. Like when the Netherlands based high performance shock absorber manufacturer with subsidiaries around the world brought a modified VW Scirocco wearing a set of stylish 19 inch BBS rims stateside to the 2009 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Only after seeing the sports coupe in person can you fully appreciate the cars all new curves and haunch rear end, now we know why Volkswagen of America is a bit hesitant to bring the car to the U.S. because after seeing the new car in person, we would be hard pressed to pick the Golf as our Volkswagen of choice, especially after you have a gander at the even more powerful Scirocco R.

Most probably, this is an awesome car! I really love the aggressiveness on its design! However, I wonder on what will be the possible competitor of this car!

I think this car haven’t makes it way on the production. I wonder on what will be the speed performance of the car and how reliable is this vehicle.

This makes the GTI lamer!BTW, The body kits cost around about $14,700.
And for another $60 you get 4 alloys and headlight lights? That’s a sweet deal!

Speaking GA Race, I think “KIA” and “race” are reciprocally exclusive!
Just like Toyota and NASCAR. At Level 1 changes were made to the ECU and the electronic injection was optimized between other things. Top velocity increases to 280 km/h that’s pretty amazing!

More powerful than the Golf, that’s what this car brings up on SEMA. Compared to Golf in terms of the design, this Scirocco proves the quality model of a European design and also for the car performance, I don’t think this car will runout the GTI.
