VW Scirocco R debuts at Nurburgring

VW Scirocco R
Choosing the upcoming 24-hour race event at the Nürburgring, Volkswagen is presenting the new VW Scirocco R for the first time.

Approximately one year after the market launch of the 3rd-generation Scirocco, Volkswagen is presenting the more powerful R model, with a turbocharged 4-cylinder 2.0-litre “TSI” engine, putting down 265 hp and 350 Nm of torque through the front wheels only, with the help of a new front-axle XDS differential lock.

The design of the Scirocco R is largely based on the Scirocco GT24, a track-only racing model. There are large air intake openings in the front bumper, an integrated front spoiler, bi-xenon headlights, roof-edge spoiler, a black diffuser and chrome tailpipes for the dual exhaust system, with side skirts and 18-inch alloy wheels.

It is unknown whether Volkswagen Middle East will release a GCC-spec Scirocco R, but the underwhelming standard version is already on sale in the UAE and elsewhere. Keep track of local updates in the VW Scirocco buyer guide.

What do you think?



  1. This R version is even hotter and attractive than the one on sale now in the Middle East, worth the wait. 😉
