Scirocco is in the snow

The VW Scirocco, the work of the dedicated team from Sweden, has a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit tricked out to produce 627 PS (461 kW / 618 bhp) to power the adapted all-wheel drive system.
The rest of the information we can just assume.
Inside the engine bay there is that bowling ball sized turbo and also the longitudinally-mounted engine. We can't tell for sure if this AWD Scirocco is using an adaptation of Audi's own quattro all-wheel drive system or the Haldex system usually found in VWs with transversely mounted engines. Including the Scirocco R, the original VW Scirocco is a FWD-only model.
What it's crystal clear is that driving on ice it's not easy and it takes a lot of practice to keep traction, but fur sure it's fun and totally worth it.
