VW R45?!

According to this source an AWD VW Golf R45 is on its way, featuring the 340bhp (possibly even 390bhp) engine from the Audi TT RS. Awesome!

Also awesome; here are even more spy shots of the VW Scirocco R20T:

“Pictured on the right, the Scirocco R is clearly wearing a more aggressive body kit with lower front and rear bumpers and more sculpted side skirts, as well as larger 19-inch wheels. But there’s no sign of the wild rear wing attached to the Bologna show car.

“When it goes on sale to the public, the Golf-based coupe will feature a storming 262bhp version of the 2.0 TFSI engine already available in 197bhp form. That means a 0-60mph sprint in around six seconds and a 155mph top speed.

“Appropriately, both the Scirocco R and Golf R20 will make their public debuts at the Nurburgring 24-hour race in May. Prices should start from around £25,000 when it goes on sale later this year. ”
*above quote and pic jacked from the German Car Blog teehee.

Still not sure if it will ever make it to our shores or not, but one can dream, right?
