Volkswagen has officially confirmed its rumoured R-badged T-Roc is coming, releasing teaser footage of its go-fast SUV at the infamous Nurburgring. The car is fully camouflaged for now, but the tricky wrapping canu0027t completely disguise itu0027s bulging arches, the quad exhaust tips poking out from beneath its shapely rump, and the 19-inch R design alloys. We donu0027t know much else, at least officially, at this point, other than the T-Roc R is expected to share its engine, and its all-wheel-drive set-up, with fire-breathing Golf R. Which should mean a turbocharged 2.0-litre unit producing a very healthy 213kW and 380Nm. In Golf guise, those numbers translate to a sprint to 100km/h in a flat five seconds, and if the T-Roc R was to get close to those numbers, we are tipping it will be a rather fun SUV. The T-Roc isnu0027t yet offered in Australia, but VW would surely be working on that, given the immense popularity of high-riders in this country. And the brand has high hopes for an R-badged halo model, too. u0022We donu0027t have any local details yet,u0022 says VW Australia spokesperson, Kurt McGuiness. u0022Obviously weu0027d like it, as Australia is one of the biggest R markets in the world. But itu0027s too soon to talk arrival dates or engine specifics.u0022 Would you rock the T-Roc R? Tell us in the comments below.
