New Scirocco R20T will debut at the 24-hour race at Nurburgring on the 21st of May. The R20T will come with a 2.0 liter turbocharged petrol/gasoline engine with anywhere between 270 and 300 hp.
Since VW will be debuting the Scirocco R20T at the 24-hour Nürburgring race on May 21st, it seems they've decided to keep the new sports model disguised as a race car until its first official unveiling then.
But in these pics the car has been spotted getting its road legs out on the streets near the race circuit, clearly with no roll cage and the rear seats still firmly in place. VW is getting cute with this teaser and it will likely have the desired effect of piquing enthusiast interest.
Different on this Scirocco version are the turn indicators merged into the headlamps, the larger roof spoiler above the rear window, a lankier front apron with big air intakes, and dual, fat exhaust pipes at each corner of the rear diffuser.
The Scirocco R20T will come with VW Group's long-standing workhorse 2.0 liter engine, this time spiced up to somewhere around 270 hp. Rumors have been whispered about a possible power output of 300 horses, to rival the new Ford Focus RS, but we will have to wait and see about that.
The VW Scirocco R20T will be unveiled along with an R20T version of the Golf as well, expected to have a similar, if not identical, powertrain configuration.
