WE MAY NEVER see the sporty Volkswagen Scirocco in Australian showrooms, but local fans can take some consolation in the release this week of a new iPhone game dedicated to the Scirocco R.

Following the successful launch of the Volkswagen Polo Challenge for the iPhone back in April, the Scirocco R 24 Hour Challenge allows gamers to hurl the most powerful Scirocco through a virtual course modelled on the famous Nurburgring.


Three different play modes - Qualifying, 24 Hour and Bluetooth-supported Multiplayer mode - give fans a variety of ways to experience the virtual version of the Scirocco R.

As with the Polo game, the Scirocco R 24 Hour Challenge can be controlled by either on-screen controls, or by using the iPhone's in-built accelerometer to steer by tilting the device left to right.

The real-world Scirocco R, along with the new Golf R (which we likely will see in Australia), is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder, developing 195kW and 350Nm of torque.
