VW Scirocco! First photos!

2008-02-29 08:50
After almost a two-decade break the Volkswagen Scirocco sport coupe is making a comeback. Photos of the new Scirocco leaked onto various websites just days before its official unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show.

The overall styling is almost identical to that of the striking Iroc concept car that appeared at the 2006 Paris Motor Show.

However, there are some design differences as the production version lost the concept's shield grille design that gave it an almost Audi-like look up front.

It now features straight, horizontal lines that give it a wider, more traditional look.

Otherwise the rest of the car's styling design is similar to the IROC although the taillights are slightly bigger.

The four-seater rides on the Golf platform. Engine details will be made available but one can expect it to be available with the usual VW engines as well as the carmaker's groundbreaking 1.4 TSI power train.
