      Wolfsburg / Nürburg, 20 May 2009 - There could not be a better time or place for a world premiere: parallel to the start of the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring, Volkswagen is presenting the new Scirocco R for the first time anywhere. A sports car without compromise and a race track that demands everything of the driver will be meeting together this weekend...

      This is AWESOME looking, I'd take the DSG model and expect it only to be a DSG IMO. But I want it in 4motion and DSG.

      Forget the mkvi gti-r and just bring this instead, charge a premium for it in limited numbers, people will buy them. Then I can pick up a used one in a few years . . .

      man, talk about insult to inury.

      My wife and I both have Gen II Sciroccos and we've have been lusting after the new gen since concepts started showing up. Then it comes to fruition and VWoA says they don't want it here. Now an even better version comes out and we still arn't getting this car. WTH VWoA

      However, Forge Motorsports brought their Gen III Scirocco to SOWO this past weekend so my wife and I finally got to see one in the flash so to speak. Pictures do no justice. The car is drop dead sexy in person and looks far better then any golf/gti (sorry guy's, everyone has their personal preference ).

      My wife even got to sit in it for a bit as we chatted with the folks from Forge UK. Great blokes by the way. They don't even understand why VWoA has their heads up their arse when it comes to this car.

      I've even tried speaking with some VWoA reps at Bug-A-Palooza last month and they couldn't give a direct reason. Just that some high up's feel it would compete too much with the GTI in sales. I don't really see that since I would think the Scirocco would have more Audi Styled pricing (An I would pay it too) which will not fall into the range of the average GTI buyer as they still want some change left over for aftermarket bitz.

      I really hope VWoA changes it's mind. I'll be sending them nice e-mails begging for this car till they bring it, or I can afford to have a pair of them imported.

      Trying to be different, just like everyone else.

      well if it is going to have audi pricing as you say, I would much rather have them bring the TTRS or RS3 with the 5 cylinder. This car is beautiful but I would rather see one of those as they will probably not bring all 3 or even 2 of them.

      Jamie, why are you such a prude? I am in love with car, yet it will probably never come here. Well, at LEAST give us that 265-hp GTI R with 4-doors so I can haul my kid to day care. Then after I drop him off I can haul ass.

      Ill add this to the long list of vag cars not avaliable for purchase in the states...

      ^^ I agree to jdouble. Of course VW came from Europe.

      We still have **** compared to they're market.

      I'm not trying to be ignorant as many people are losing jobs due to closure of domestic industries, but I sure as hell hope the the VW market becomes greater and offer more.

      Seems like it is in the works. But everyone want more options! Including me. . .

      Don't forget VW is building a plant in Kentucky iirc. There's some US jobs for ppl getting layoffs at GM.

      I hate you Volkswagen of America because you keep making such massive marketing mistakes. Routan, Phaeton, no Polo, no Scirocco, limited diesels, roadster... do I really need to go on?

      30 Volkswagens under my belt and I might never get a chance to buy the new Volkswagen of my dreams because you have your head so far up your arse that a ray of sunshine has a better chance of reaching the center of the Earth.

      So it's probably safe to say that we will get the 265hp GTI-R. It only makes sense to share platforms, right???
