Under the bonnet there is a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder unit that develops 265 PS and 350 Nm of torque and the German manufacturer hopes that the new racing game will be as popular as the first one witch featured the new Polo and totaled more than 1.4 million downloads.
The Volkswagen Scirocco price is expected to be revealed sometime in October.
Wolkswagen press release :
As the covers are taken off the new Scirocco R at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA), Volkswagen is revving it up with a new interactive racing game.  The “Scirocco R 24 hour Challenge” allows gamers to drive the most powerful and fastest accelerating production Scirocco ever built through a series of difficult corners and expansive landscapes similar to the Nürburgring.  The game is available now to download for free for the iPhone and iPod touch from the Apple App store.
A perfectly animated race circuit that comes so close to the legendary Nordschleife makes the “Scirocco R 24 hour Challenge” pure racing game fun.  Three different play modes – qualifying mode, 24 hour mode and multiplayer mode (via Bluetooth) – liven up the game, and extras including the genuine engine note of the Scirocco R, different sound effects and the chance to customise your own Scirocco R provide long lasting enjoyment.  The player can choose to control the Scirocco R by touchscreen or by tilt sensor to provide the best possible intuitive driving fun.
In real life, the star of the racing game, the Scirocco R, is powered by a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine producing 265 PS and 350 Nm of torque.  This accelerates the Scirocco R to 62 mph from standstill in 6.0 seconds (5.8 seconds with DSG gearbox) and on to a top speed of 155 mph.  The Scirocco R is also fitted with Adaptive Chassis Control (ACC) and ensuring greater grip in all conditions, especially on tight corners, is XDS (first seen on the new Golf GTI) an electronic cross-axle traction control system
The mechanical changes to the Scirocco R are joined by a purposeful new look.  The new front bumper, featuring a set of LED running lights, is dominated by a trio of deep airdams providing optimal cooling to the engine and braking systems, while Xenon headlights frame a new gloss black grille element set into which is a single ‘R’ badge.  The rear section features the distinctly enlarged roof spoiler and twin
chrome exhaust pipes separated by a striking polished black diffuser. 
This is the second time that Volkswagen has used a racing game as a form of marketing.  In March this year, as the new Polo debuted at the Geneva Motor Show, the racing game “Volkswagen Polo challenge” was presented; with more than 1.4 million downloads in four weeks, it conquered the Apple App stores worldwide.
The Scirocco R will be available to order in October with prices and specifications due to be announced nearer this time.
