Need for Speed: World
With stock performance, the Scirocco is capable of reaching a moderate top speed and an above average acceleration. It has a somewhat unresponsive steering due to its heavy mass. Its nitrous boost is among the weakest within Class E.
On April 3rd, 2012 its performance was slightly improved as part of a patch. It has received a higher top speed (131 mph/211 km/h) and is slightly less prone to understeer than before. It has a similar handling to the Volkswagen Golf R32.
The Scirocco is best utilised in Pursuit Outrun and Team Escape. It has good power to compete in race events although it is easily outmatched by lighter rear-wheel drive cars such as the Nissan Silvia (S15) and the Nissan 200SX (S14) in corners.
The Thumper style is a rental car that can be leased for 80. It was made available on June 28th, 2010 during the sixth closed beta session.
