2010 VW Scirocco R by B&B

Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2010

The tuning specialists at B&B have created their own version of the VW Scirocco R. The German-based tuner, which specializes in Audi and VW cars, raised performance values, which typically are preserved by high class sports cars. B&B said that cars can reach 3 different stages (310, 324 and 362 hp). The car can accelerate to 100km/h from a standstill in 4.9 seconds, while Vmax level is over 280km/h.

To attain these performance values, B&B mounts a bigger turbo charger, a sport exhaust system with a special downpipe and high performance sports catalysts.

B&B's electronic tuning perfectly harmonizes all these components. Furthermore, the intake system and air cooling system gets optimized. B&B offers a special slim-line oil cooling system that should keep oil temperature on the correct level.

Car owners can buy B&B sport springs to lower the cars height by up to 30mm. This reduces its declination. B&B is also offering a special coilovers that's adjustable in height, as well as pull and push stages, which allows higher curve speed.

For better handling, B&B has an 8-stroke high quality breaking system that can be ordered. Exclusive wheel sets in 19" and 20" finish the VW's "Sportcoupe" appearance.

When launched, the front-wheel drive MY2010 VW Scirocco R will be available with a specially tuned sport chassis and XDS electronic transverse differential lock as standard. XDS – a functional extension of the EDS (electronic differential lock) that is already included in the ESP system – gets rid of any type of traction loss and compensates for any understeer.

The instant that the vehicle’s intelligent electronics detects unloading of the front wheel at the inside of a curve while cornering, the ESP hydraulics will apply braking pressure at that wheel in order to bring back optimal traction.

During that time, XDS functions like a transverse differential lock that counteracts the usual understeer movements of an FWD vehicle during fast curve driving. Thus, XDS brings more precision to the driving character of the new VW Scirocco R.

On the other hand, the front chassis of the VW Scirocco R features a McPherson suspension for precise tracking and steady comfort properties. Meanwhile, the rear part of the chassis features a four-link suspension that allows for a sporty yet comfortable tuning of the VW Scirocco R.

Typically, it is hard to balance comfort and dynamics. But VW was able to create such a good balance by installing Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) on the VW Scirocco R. DCC works by continually adjusting the damping of individual wheels to roadway conditions, relying on the signals sent by three body sensors and displacement sensors for each wheel.

During acceleration, braking or steering, chassis damping is stiffened in just fractions of a second, thereby meeting the VW Scirocco R’s dynamic requirements. Through these automatic adjustments, DCC is able to heighten the comfort level during less demanding driving situations. Drivers could choose from three available DCC modes: Normal, Sport and Comfort.
