Click above for a high-res gallery of the Scirocco racer.

Volkswagen is taunting us again with another shot of its 'Ring-bound Scirocco, and this time, we get to see the race-ready hatch in profile. VW has been testing the Scirocco in the run up to the 24 Hours of Nurburgring race that's set to begin on May 24, and according to VW Motorsport Director, Kris Nissen, the Scirocco is living up to expectations. With 300 hp provided by its 2.0-liter TFSI engine, Nissen says that, "the new Scirocco was in its element from its very first lap around the Nordschleife." It's a grueling test and we're looking forward to how the Scirocco fairs later this month.

      "the scirocco will hurt sales of the gti"

      of course it would.. who would want a riced rabbit when they could have a scirocco?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Doesnt the GTi hurt sales of the Golf? and the r32 of the GTi? oi. Scrap the r36 (thats what is gonna be now right?) and give the people the Scirocco.

        I disagree. Don't sell us the Scirocco. Sell us something that looks and performs more like this race Scirocco. THAT will sell. Otherwise, IMO, the Scirocco looks like a lightly refreshed GTI. Read: BORING.

      Nicest car VW's made in years, probably since the Corrado, and of course North Americans don't get it. Seriously, living here gets really old sometimes...

      Yes please!
        • 6 Years Ago
        x2, i'd drop the .:R in a heartbeat for a lighter car with more hp and a little fresher inside.
