I’ve previously mentioned that the all wheel drive 265hp Golf R seems to be bloody near the ideal of the perfect all round car. I have also complained at great length about the terrifying lack of Scirocco in North America. For those of you who are living in holes, the VW Scirocco is a lower, more grippy GTI that only comes in a two door trim and looks gorgeous. Sadly, VW’s North American marketing team said that they don’t want to sell it here, since they think it will jeopardize GTI sales.
If you want an idea of what a hot-hatch should be, simply watch the video. Once you have finished, go to your local Volkswagen dealer and threaten to buy a Volvo C30 if they can’t get you a Scirocco R.
