Scirocco maybe next R32

Here's a post from autoweek saying they may bring the scirocco to the states after all. They also go on saying, "That's the model we've chosen to take a look at for a special Scirocco," referring to the R32. So how would they place the GTI-R then?

I hope that we would get all 3 models or maybe a 4th Scirocco-R. Now that would be fun. Whats really gonna matter for me is if i can get a manual trans.

A guy I met who works at my dealership said that they are going to bring a limited amount of scirocco's to the US (sort of how there are only 5000 R32s). It sounds legit because my dealership has very close contact with VWoA because they relocated right around my area (IIRC Herndon). My dealership (Lindsay VW of Dulles) also had the R-GTI (not to be confused with the GTI-R) visit them not too long ago, he had pictures and videos of it on his phone while he was narrating.

I like the sound of this. The Scirocco looks really cool and with a more powerful engine and maybe AWD, it'd be really nice.

No it's still the 2.0TSI (CCTA/CBFA) engine with FWD. It has no relation to the R32 besides the fact that it has limited production in the US.

You can hope but if they do make it I guarantee the US will not get it.
