Look, we don’t speak German, but LUST knows no language. So forgive our very awful Deutsche Sprache and take a peek at this Scirocco R. Whether it’s the 265 horsepower or the Golf-on-‘roids body, look but don’t touch – it’s verboten to us Amerikaners.
Why the Scirocco isn’t coming over here isn’t much of a mystery, as it would cannibalize GTI sales quicker than VW Routans are piling up in dealer’s inventories. And VW doesn’t need to be stepping on its own toes with Porsches’ on-again, off-again merger threat looming. But look, WE WANT ONE, schnell!!! Are you listening, VW? Give us the 2.0 TFSI engine and the 6-speed or DSG transmission, plus that nifty XDS differential to keep the front wheels from squirming and us from ending up in a ditch. Bottom line – this is a cool car as far as VWs go. You’ll have to be satisfied with the Audi A3 or VW GTI bretheren – they sport the turbo 2L four-banger as well.
