Along with the hotted up Golf R20, VW is working on the Scirooco R20 as well, and both cars will debut at 24 hours of Nürburgring. The car is based on the concept version shown in Bologna Motorshow last year, but features different styling and has been tarted up for the race.
The car comes with a new front apron in form of a big mouth! unlike the Bologna concept which had three separate air intakes. But styling doesn’t really matter, this car is supposed to be a good racer, so what lies under the bonnet is the important thing. It features a 2.0 liter TFSI engine like its brother Golf R20 with 270 horsepower which is enough for 0-100 sprint of about 5 seconds. Other race-inspired elements are things like bigger wheels or a cockpit with bucket seats, aluminum pedals and a sporty steering wheel.
