Default 2008 VW Scirroco

The internet is abuzz with rumors that VW will bring back it's iconic sports car the Scirroco in 2008. We checked up with VW, Canada on this and they absolutely denied that the Scirroco was being brought back but there are computer generated images of the new Scirroco at Autobild.com. The car looks HOT!

Autoweek reports that the Scirocco has been given the green signal and the car should be avaliable by 2008 in Europe and by 2009 in North America. Too early for prices but news coming out of VW indicates base price for the 4 cylinder (TSI) will start at Euro 22.000 or USD 28,000. Top end version will have V6 power with 4motion.

Engine options :
1.4 TSI 140-170hp
2.0 Turbo FSI from golf GTi and various VW/Audi/Skoda/Seat models with 230bhp (compared to 200bhp now)
3.6 V6 280hp
2.0 Diesel 4 cylinder
All engines will be mated to a 6 speed manual or DSG.

Some more computer generated images of the upcoming Scirocco.



The autoweek report also has news of VW's future models. The new Polo according to them maybe launched in North America.
