Volkswagen used the Bologna motor show to roll out the Scirocco Studie R concept. And what we see is pointing the way to a car we expect to replace the Golf R32 in VW’s lineup about a year from now. This new car is likely to be called the R20T.
Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at about 270 hp. The engine is mated to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The exterior of the Studie R wears bodywork– including hood vents and a rear spoiler–similar to that used on Sciroccos that grabbed racing victories at Nürburgring earlier this year. The car also sports high-gloss black detailing and red and green accents.
It also gets a racing-derived sports suspension, four-piston brake calipers and triple-spoke, 19-inch alloy wheels.
