    yeah they want to cover most of all... the name volkswagen obeys to something.... that's why they took off their SUV programme, now they're on more avangardish variations - vide passat CC.

    the market is targeting the niches. coupe-ing cars is one of the most popular trends now - first CLS, then jag XF, BMW CS and megane/laguna coupes making their way - just to name a few

    Volkswagen Scirocco R

    The new Scirocco R – From the race track to the road
    Sports car has international debut at the Nürburgring


    Wolfsburg / Nürburg, 20 May 2009
    - There could not be a better time or place for a world premiere: parallel to the start of the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring, Volkswagen is presenting the new Scirocco R for the first time anywhere. A sports car without compromise and a race track that demands everything of the driver will be meeting together this weekend.

    Approximately one year after the market launch of the third Scirocco generation, Volkswagen is presenting the most powerful series built Scirocco ever made at the Nürburgring. Its charged four-cylinder 2.0 l TSI is impressive with an output of 195 kW / 265 PS and 350 Newton metres of torque – the dynamic effect is just as striking as the running gear which provides optimal traction characteristics thanks to, amongst other things, the new front axle differential lock XDS.

    The design of the Scirocco R is largely based on the Scirocco GT24, which was designed for motor sports: there are large air intake openings in the front bumper which the engineers used to achieve optimal cooling for the engine and the brakes, and an integrated front spoiler as well as the bi-xenon headlights. At the rear end, the roof edge spoiler, which is much larger than on the standard model, a striking shining black diffuser and the chrome tailpipes of the dual exhaust system dominate the design. The side view of the vehicle is characterised by the powerful sill panels as well as the specially-designed 18" alloy wheels "Talladega".

    Volkswagen will demonstrate the potential of the new Scirocco R during the 24- hour race with this racing version. With a total of five Sciroccos, driver teams including Dr Ulrich Hackenberg, member of the Volkswagen board of management for technical development, the rally world champion Carlos Sainz as well as this year's Dakar winner Giniel de Villiers, will be at the start line.

    Note: Comprehensive information on the 24-hour race can be found at www.volkswagen-motorsport.info.

    I love it. im glad they improved the interior, which in the normal Scirocco is the same as the Golf's.
    Exaggeration is a bad thing. In fact, it is the root of all evil in this world

    I still wonder why it has to be so wide compared to the Golf.

    It's called stance, presence and attitude.

    to dissimulate the height and make it look low and sporty despite being quite large.
    That or a higher door panel (keep forgetting the word, where the panel ends and the window starts).

    I prefer feeling comfortable in a narrow twisty road (of which we have plenty) than having some attitude.

    the wider track of the car helps being more stable and therefore quicker than the Golf, if everything else is the same.
    It could also be, apart from an aesthetic trick, to recover some of the Golf dynamic abilities perhaps get lost during the mods which led to the Scirocco.
    I still think they made it so mainly for the kids to say "zOmg it's wide, it's fast!"
