Volkswagen Golf R & Scirocco R hit the Racetrack

Volkswagen has released a new video showing their Scirocco R and Golf R in action. The clip is pretty self explanatory, so watch it and enjoy.
As we have previously reported, the Scirocco R has a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with 265 hp and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. Connected to six-speed manual transmission (or an optional dual-clutch DSG gearbox), the front-wheel drive hot hatch runs from 0-100 km/h in 6.5 seconds (6.4 seconds with DSG) before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

On the other hand, the Golf R uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI engine (with direction injection) that produces 270 hp and 350 Nm of torque. Despite the weight plenty of all-wheel drive, the car accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 5.7 seconds (5.5 seconds with DSG) before topping out at 250 km/h (155 mph).

The Scirocco R will start arriving at European dealerships this fall, while customers can pre-order the Golf R later this year. I can't wait till they hit Kuwait I know I am considering geting one. What about you?
