Next VW Scirocco Could Gain Super-Sporty RS Model


We learn via Car Magazine that Volkswagen is currently not sure where to take its next-gen Scirocco. Do they make it cheaper, more practical and closer to a Golf, or do they turn it into a very different sports car that could also spawn a super-sporty stripped out RS version – think Opel Astra OPC Extreme, but with a VW badge and possibly all-wheel drive?

The Wolfsburg giant will have no trouble sourcing the necessary engineering knowhow and parts needed to create a 300+ hp 4Motion rocket, but the question is “should they?”

The proposed model would punch well above its (Golf) weight, taking the fight directly to Audi’s S- and RS- badged models.

However, these are mere speculations at this point, as the current-gen Scirocco has just been facelifted and an all-new one is not due any time sooner than 2017.

So, what do you think? Should it be a (cheaper) glorified Golf or (more expensive) own model with a distinct sporty character and blisteringly fast top-spec version?
