Latest model: Volkswagen Scirocco R 2010
Volkswagen Scirocco R 2010The Volkswagen Scirocco R - conceptualized by Volkswagen Individual - is an cool performance suite with a brilliant motor and chassis, original looks and exclusive features. Instead of the usual six-cylinder used so far in R-models of this segment, a boosted four-cylinder TSI is being used in the new Volkswagen Scirocco R. Its advantages: very high performance and torque values with significantly reduced fuel consumption. On average, just 8. 3 liters of super unleaded flows to the combustion chambers via direct injection per 100 kilometers of driving. That corresponds to CO2 emissions of 194 g/km - top values for a quickly 250 km/h (electronically limited) sports vehicle.

Volkswagen Scirocco details:

Volkswagen Scirocco fleet at the start in 24 hour race: Volkswagen plans to demonstrate once again at the 24 hour race just how much dynamic potential the Volkswagen Scirocco R possesses. An entire fleet of two-door vehicles, five vehicles altogether, will enter the marathon ride via the Green Hell there; all of them bear a close resemblance to the production car, both technically and visually.

Gas in a literal sense: Three of the Volkswagen Scirocco GT24 versions are powered by a TSI gasoline motor with 315 PS. Two other Volkswagen Scirocco GT24 vehicles carry the add-on CNG label, designating Compressed Natural Gas, because their TSI is fired with very cleanly combusting natural gas - an exception in vehicle racing. The 300 PS Volkswagen Scirocco GT24-CNG vehicles have extremely low emissions. After winning and putting its stamp on the Dakar Rally with the Race Touareg powered by a economical TDI (direct-injection diesel), Volkswagen is now taking up the issue of sustainability in the Volkswagen Scirocco GT24 as well - and emphatically - on the race course.

Volkswagen Scirocco R - from vehicle racing to the street: This is not the Volkswagen Scirocco's first race of this type. This Volkswagen was shaking up the racing field on such occasions as far rear as the 1970s. And in 2008, professionals the likes of Carlos Sainz and Hans-joachim Stuck rocketed two Volkswagen Scirocco GT24 vehicles to a dual victory in its class. In 2009, things will be even more impressive. Because for the first time, the event provides an opportunity to take a good exterior at the street version of the racing vehicles in the form of the new Volkswagen Scirocco R. The first production vehicles will be manufactured later this year; with a manual six-speed transmission or - as in the Volkswagen Scirocco race cars - with the auxillary DSG 6-speed dual clutch transmission. Always aboard as traditional equipment on the front-wheel drive vehicle: the XDS electronic transverse differential lock on the front axle for attaining optimal traction performance; this system was presented for the first time on the new Volkswagen Golf GTI.
