This could be the ultimate Scirocco to get for performance fans, but if you want exclusivity, the lower-powered and slightly slower GTS model could also be worth a look.

VW Scirocco R static

The Scirocco R's performance and coupe (-ish) looks offered something different to hot hatch enthusiasts, but as the years went by, it had to face newer and more talented rivals. The 2016 SEAT Leon Cupra 290 is faster, sounds better from the inside and arguably looks more modern.
