Scirocco R




Compared to a standard Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0TSI, the exterior looks pretty much the same. This is the same story with the 1.4 TSI and 2.0 TSI Volkswgen Scirocco. What you do get is, a more powerful engine, aggressive air intake openings in the front bumper, a front diffuser, dual xenon headlights, a much larger rear roof spoiler, rear diffuser, and a Talladega 18 inch alloy wheels.





The "R" symbolises an enhanced version, similar to what Honda does with its cars (Type R). Priced at RM279,888 OTR, the Scirocco R packs 255bhp and 330Nm Torque. All these power is delivered through a 6 speed DSG gearbox. Acceleration is improved from the standard Scirocco 2.0 TFSI, accelerating 0-100km/h in 6 seconds, with a top speed of 250km/h. The best part is the fuel economy, stated to give 12.5km/L or  100km per 8 litres!

0-100km/h is done in 6 seconds flat...

The Volkswagen Scirocco R is available in Malaysia through Volkswagen Group Malaysia (VGM), and is priced at RM279,888 OTR.
