And? Its a production car and they tested it, Doesnt matter if its not sold in the US or not, That is FAR beyond any point. Thats like saying a time shouldnt be added if a Holden was tested by BestMotoring. That is just beyond retarded.

Motor Trend is an American magazine + they tested the Europe-only VWSR in the USA...

It's like testing a US-only car (think the Chevy SS sedan) in Germany.

Doesn't matter that its not sold or homologated in some countries.

There are many cars which are street legal only in few countries - think Radical SR8.

The tracktime itself is correct but the Scirocco R isn't sold and probably isn't even street legal in the US (only in other countries, such as Germany and other European countries). According to the site rules only street legal production cars are allowed. I'd say keep the car but delete the laptime.
