New Reveal : Volkswagen Scirocco Studie R Concept
In May 2008, two Scirocco GT24 race cars finished first and second in their class at the 24-hour race on the Nürburgring track. Now Volkswagen is presenting a street version of the race car at the Bologna Motor Show: the Scirocco Studie R Concept has a 270hp 2.0L TSI engine for everyday practicality, yet it still delivers aggressive propulsive power. This power is channeled to a 6-speed DSG dual clutch transmission. Adapted directly from the racing car are the coilovers, four-piston brake calipers and a sound-optimized exhaust system. Visually, this concept car emulates the racing version to a great extent. This German car is an homage to Italy. The tri-colors of the motor show host country are represented by green, white and red elements of both the exterior and interior.
