VW Scirocco R

Like the new Golf R which replaced the R32 in VW’s performance range, the company took the line with the Scirocco and introduced a R version as its sport model.

Both cars share the same styling cues as well as the same engine which is a 2.0 liter turbocharged developing 270hp and 350 nm of torque. Unlike the Golf though, the Scirocco is not an AWD vehicle and relies only to its front wheels to move it around!

The Scirocco R features an aggressive body kit just like the one on the Golf with big air intakes and LED lights, and is fitted with 18-inch wheels (19-inch optional).

The car is priced at 33,475 Euros while its slightly smaller but more practical Golf brother costs 36,400 Euros. Your choice.
