Volkswagen working on the Scirocco R20T |

We’re convinced the new Volkswagen Scirocco will be a success and it looks like the German company is currently working on a more powerful version of the car, to please those wanting more power, not just good looks. The model will most likely weat the “R20T” name tag, coming from the 2.0 liter turbo engine which will power the car, the same engine that is currently offered for the Audi S3. The engine delivers 245 hp and will take the car from stand to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 6 seconds, while the top speed will be electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h). Rumors say that the Scirocco R20T will be inspired by the GT24 race car and the car is expected to debut early in 2010, with UK pricing starting at around £25,000 ($38,500).
