Fastest Scirocco to be badged R20T and borrow engine from Audi S3.
The Scirocco is hotting up! A pumped-up version of VW's Golf-based coupe is on the way to be badged the R20T.
It will take its styling cues from the GT24 racer, unveiled last year, and looks set to offer a range of performance enhancing modifications including a wider track with flared wheel arches. The newcomer will also get an aggressive body kit and lowered suspension, as well as a bespoke interior, featuring bucket seats and a sued rimmed steering wheel.
Drivers will be offered a choice of manual and seven speed semi automatic gearbox, but instead of using the thirsty and heavy 3.2-litre V6 from the last generation Golf R32, it will be fitted with more fuel efficient 261bhp 2.0-litre turbo unit from the Audi S3.
The fastest Scirroco yet is due to appear early in 2010. News
of the model comes hot on the heels of further details on VW's ambitious plans for a whole family of Scirocco badged cars, including a cabriolet and ultra fuel efficient bluemotion model.
