Default Pics: Volkswagen Scirocco

VW Scirocco GTi in Inorbit basement.
No, its not modified. Its just the way it is.
I think it has a 1.8L inline four cylinder engine producing around 110 bhp.

The bumpers dont look stock. There is something wierd about the skirts too. I dont think even the GTi had those.

This car belongs to a famous vintage car collector from South Bombay. He had been trying to sell it off for a long time, as I guess it just didn't fit in with the rest of his collection.

Last i saw it it was in miserable condition with plexiglass windows and the interior was a mess. Good to see its been restored now.

Exclamation Hmmmmm!

Nothing wrong with the car people just that he is running it on really really tiny wheels.........looks like 13"ers...whereas the GTi runs on 16"ers and much thicker rubber.......

You're right, the car is not modified. Its just that its running on very small wheels/tyres and I think its tooo inside, maybe because the tyre width is too less.

Maybe.
In the first pic, I didn't use flash and kept the shutter open for about 1-2 seconds.
In the other pics, the shutter was at 1/40 and full flash was used.

for all the comments i know my wheels are a little small but they are stock they need to be broader but the tyre size aint avail in india so i have placed an order for 16" rims and better tyres also gettin racer slicks ! as far as the engine most of u got it right!
by the way this is the only scirocco in mumbai city the other one at jogeshwari is a passat while the others u ppl refere to as the scirocco are golf/rabbit's. hey gordon if you read this are you from orlem?
