2012 Volkswagen Scirocco R Modification

This 2012 Volkswagen Scirocco R is the subject of a 79 page modification thread on http://www.vwgolf.net.au/forum.php by it’s owner, forum member “Rev555”.  While we normally don’t feature slammed stance rides with flat wraps here, we have made the exception for this particular car because of it’s impressive list of modifications. Also because we have a soft spot for the “new” Scirocco that is unfortunately not being imported here into the United States, which makes it even more difficult after seeing these photos. In any case, when a car is as modified as this feature R, there are always decisions to personalize it to one’s own unique taste that not everybody will agree upon, but we can respect that when the overall end result is more about performance than appearance. With 513 ft lbs of torque, we have no problems at all here. Moving on…

For whatever internal VW factory reasons, the sportier Scirocco R version was left as front-wheel-drive while the Golf R versions are all-wheel-drive. While all of that added power and torque of this feature car could be assisted by 2 extra drive wheels, we are glad to see that a DREXLER clutch type differential was added to help get the power to the ground. That took care of a fair amount of the torque steer which was bound to happen with that much grunt going through the front drive wheels.

19X9.5 ADV8.1 Forged One Piece rims with 265/30/19 Michelin Pilot Super Sports also aid in hooking traction up, and H&R sway bars and coilovers were added, as well.
The full parts list can be found at the bottom of the page, which also includes a Stage 1 HPA tune.

A factory piece which artificially amplifies the exhaust note into the cabin called the “Soundaktor” was removed, which we also thought was a good idea to toss. We had only heard of that before in the latest BMW M5, but let’s just hope that this isn’t becoming a trend with the manufacturers.

When the phrase “a picture can speak a thousand words” was originally coined, it certainly might have had this thread in mind if any foresight was at all possible since there are enough photos to do the talking in this long thread here. We would have not gone so far as the wrap and appearance modifications but we would have done all of the performance items and interior pieces, since we are sticklers for subtlety. To each their own, which we can respect. Oh yeah, and raise it a little bit, ok? Did that just age us?…
