2010 Scirocco R and the Golf R models : Reviews and Specification



The VW Scirocco R and the Golf R models are now on available for order in the U.K. market.
Is it me, or is it that every time a press release comes out on the new VW Golf & Scirocco Rs, their HP rating seems to shift. The Golf R is now @ 270hp, The time before that, it was stated to be @ around 250-260 HP.
Both models are powered by VW's 2.0 liter TSI engine, producing slightly varied power outputs in each. The Scirocco R comes with 265 hp while the Golf R gets a nominally higher 270 hp. Both have the same torque rating at 258 lb-ft or 350 Nm.
Standard gearbox for both is a 6-speed manual while the DSG transmission (a sequential 6-peed, dual-clutch gearbox) can be had for £1,300 (1,450 euros).
The two models differ on the rest of the drivetrain, though. The Scirocco R is a front-wheel drive fitted with VW's XDS electronic cross-axle traction control system to insure as optimal a management of all that power going through the front wheels as possible. The Golf R comes with VW's 4MOTION all-wheel drive system with a new pre-charged hydraulic system to better match torque to traction.265 hp for a super hot hatch .....hmmmm I am curious hom much faster the ford RS is than this I would throw in the R26R in there too...and we all wait for the new RS results on hot hatch reviews....cant wait to see a possible new 26R.
With this new variant the Golf R now becomes VW's fastest ever production vehicle by acceleration, clocking the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 5.5 seconds with the DSG gearbox (5.7 with the manual). The Scirocco R's numbers are 5.8 (DSG) and 6.0 seconds (manual), respectively.That looks good, I was starting to think VW had forgotten how to make sports cars after the MK6 Golf GTI.
This is a beast, wonder what the price tag is.
Hoping now they will come clean with the Gold MK 6 R20
when you look at the TT-S and S3, whilst they have different engine mappings, and transmission setups, it is pretty impressive the difference AWD makes. Really surprised they didn't go for awd with this!
The models are made distinct by a front bumper with LED lights, triple air intakes, roof mounted spoiler, a rear diffuser and dual exhaust pipes. 18-inch wheels are standard with 19-inch as optional.
Pricing starts at £26,945 (30,040 euros) for the Scirocco R and £28,930 (32,250 euros) for the Golf R.
