VW announces prices for Scirocco R and Golf R in UK

Over in the U.K., the R-line versions of the Golf and Scirocco have been priced and can now be ordered. The Scirocco is the cheaper of the two, going for £26,945 ($61,527 NZ), while the Golf comes in more expensive at £28,930 ($66,121 NZ). They both come standard with a 6-speed manual, but if you want VW’s DSG transmission option adds £1,300 to either car.

They’re the fastest and most powerful versions yet in their respective model lines with the 261-hp, front-wheel-drive Scirocco getting to 100kph in 6 seconds and the 266-hp, 4MOTION-equipped Golf in 5.7. If you get the manual transmission add 0.2 seconds to those times.

The cars are due in U.K. showrooms in February of next year, it may be a while longer before we see any down here in NZ.
