Regarding the track record at Anglesey Coastal tested in Fifth Gear the TV show, Honda Civic Type R FD2 (JDM) recorded 1:24:06, less than one second faster than the Scirocco 1.4 TwinCharger!

@golf3diesel: if you enjoy driving the scirocco is the one to pick since the body is quite a bit stiffer than the Golfs. The 2wd scirocco R kicks the 4wd Golf R\'s ass on the track with less hp and torque and slightly less weight. If you need the bootspace or the rearseats than the Golf is easier to live with and it is cheaper i think

It seems very strange that this car does in Autozeitung track that unbelievable time,in a teritory of above 200 hp,while itself has only 160 hp.The first car with similar specs (207RC) is slower by 2 sec.Is this a MOG (monster of grip) or the laptime is wrong?PS.I used the filter and I took into consideration only FWD cars.


User avatar

Georg  11y ago

the lap was done by the 200hp 2.0l Scirocco... have deleted the time here and added at the right Scirocco model...

@stelio
Inoffocial Test of the Scirocco 2.0T was 1.21.4 min in hockenheim...
Think the 1.4T will slightly beat the time of the golf GT (1.22.7min)

So if the 2.0 is now listed at 0-100 6.2 (unofficial time) - what will the 1.4 actually do? VW's 8 seconds clearly conservative.

7? 7.1?

Who'd buy a Brera, eh? ;)

stelios  12y ago

Isn´t strange that the Scirocco 1.4 TSI or 2.0 was not tested in Hockenheim Short?Does anybody knows something about it?


User avatar

Seems like you won't see the VR6 engine anymore in a Golf or Scirocco. The 2.0T engine producing 272 ps in TTS will be the replacement. maestro is also most likely very correct, the soon to be released 204 ps twin turbo diesel will most certainly also be available for the Scirocco.

i know all that stuff but im saying a volkswagen wit a volkswagen badge. and in my opinion the audi r8 IS a supercar. in this day and age what makes a supercar a supercar?


User avatar

Georg  12y ago

They alsow owns Audi, there they have the Rosemeyer concept car, build befor the Veyron using the same engine minus the turbos. R8 is claimed to be a supercar (in my eyes it is a sportcar no supercar)
There are many manufactors without a supercar.


User avatar

Wads  12y ago

Rice..... depends if you count the Bugati Veyron..... VW own Bugati so I think you could say they have nothing to prove when it comes to building a supercar! LOL


User avatar

maestro  12y ago

I expect a turbo diesel 2.0l 200hp scirocco from vw. that would be great.


User avatar

rice  12y ago

i would love to see a volkswagen version of a supercar..lol vdub is the only manufaktur that doesnt have a supa car yet. they should have made the w12 nardo that was sweet..lol


User avatar

PhantomPorsche  12y ago

In the VW sports car position it would be better to make a R8 based Volkswagen, but more people would take the Audi just for the name.


User avatar

rice  12y ago

stupid..thats your opinion putting a w12 in this WOULD be awesome if i had the money to afford a w12 scirocco, damn straight id buy one and the only thing stupid about that is that you think its stupid. and i think it is time for the world to see volkswagen have a super car...even if it were to be front wheel drive. i think there should be atleast 1 front wheel drive supercar in the world..so stupid?.....riiiiiiighttt..


User avatar

FastestLaps  12y ago

That would be stupid more than awesome. This is not a supercar - it's FWD coupe. Golf W12 was just a concept car to prove "yes we can put a W12 in a golf".


User avatar

rice  12y ago

well is there any way to put a bigger badder better engine in it ya know kinda like they did the w12 650 cancept..yhat would be fu##ing awesomee..lol


User avatar

the VR6 is to heavy would make it much to nose heavy, which would completely ruin the concept of a modern light vehicle.
Currently confimred are only the 1.4TSI with different power ouput some diesel versions and a 200hp 2.0l TFSI. VW currently thinks about a topversion with a 250hp 2.0l TFSI engine most likely called Scirocco R250.
BTW the Scirocco starts its race carrer befor going on sale. VW race the next 24h at the Ring with 3 factory Scirocco raced by some well known race drivers like WRC world champion Carlos Sainz, 3time 24h of the Ring winner Hans-Joachim Stuck, Ginelle de Villers, Dieter Depping etc.
VW hopes to repeated the GTI´s last years sensationell 8th place overall(and overwhelming class victory) with their Golf GTI..the 24h Scirocco shares the whole technic of the last season GTI.
At the same race the Scirocco Mk I started Volkswagen touring car racing history.

maybe they could make they engine bay bigger or somthing. im not a power freak or anything but in a car that looks this good i think it deserves a lil..okay a lot more power


User avatar

FastestLaps  12y ago

The best they could do is put Golf R32 3.2 liter V6 in it. But it's big, heavy and very powerful engine for FWD. For a car this light (only 1271 kilograms) 2.0 Golf GTi engine should be enough for everyone's expectations. And 1.4 Turbo is adequate as well.

Anonymous  12y ago

why would it be pointless?


User avatar

PhantomPorsche  12y ago

Well that much power for a FWD is quite pointless but the 285 bhp would do, unless it would be a RWD or AWD but RWD depending on the wheelbase.


User avatar

Anonymous  12y ago

what this thing need is more power. im thinkin 3 better versions.
1 with a 285 bhp v6 another with a 360 bhp v8 and the ultimate 440 w12...lol that would kick f**kin ass baby..lol


User avatar

Georg  12y ago

in the latest Autozeitung was a short compare to the Opel Astra GTC, unfortunatily without a track test... the Scirocco was all black.. looks fantastic in black. I am realy pleased by the weight, there are not many new cars in the hatchback class with such a low weight


User avatar

PhantomPorsche  12y ago

Its finnally here, and it looks great just like the old one but it doesnt take much styling cues form the old one.
