    There was a time. A time when an electric clock felt noteworthy and a parcel tray attached to the trunk by a string felt like the height of technology. And it was a good time because it produced the Scirocco. This utterly English review from Tony Bastable for the Thames TV’s Drive-in features...

    For many of us, getting a car onto the Nurburgring for its public lapping days is a dream, but for some it turns quickly into a nightmare. This Scirocco looks to have been having a pretty good day until it came out of a corner a little hot and ran headlong into the barriers at the next corner...

    Summer is here! Time for great car shows like Southern Worthersee, FixxFest, Waterfest, Wookies in the Woods, and Cincy Wait: Cincy? What the heck is Cincy? Well, that's a tough one. See, Cincy isn't a show. Not in the traditional sense. It's centered around Scirocco's, but it's not just about...

    It's Wednesday, so it's time once again for our Find of the Day. This week we have a sweet silver Scirocco in excellent shape. If you're in the market for some new metal, this might be just the car. Volkswagen never quite found the sweet spot with their sporty coupes. Some people classify the...

    Dreaming of a screaming spring ride? Look no further than our latest Find of the Day: a 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco 16V. And guess what? This one's not red! If you knew nothing about Scirocco 16Vs and started searching for used one for sale, you'd think they only came in one color. So here's a...

    It's the time of year when red and green are all around us. Everywhere you turn there's decorations strung up for the holiday season.

    The dream of the 80s is alive in Portland (we took a little license with the decade). For a mere $1,200 you can zip around in your own piece of VW's quirky coupe history. This week's Ratty Rescue is a little less ratty, but still in need of rescue, so if you're in the market for a...

    Even though you couldn’t buy it here, and even though it was part of a class of cars that don't really make good business sense—perhaps because of that—the Scirocco held a special place in hearts of the faithful. Now, after nten years, production of the third-gen Scirocco has stopped, with no...

    VW Vortex was lucky enough to join European (as well as a smattering of other) Volkswagen fans in Wolfsburg last weekend for Coming Home 2017, a first-of-its-kind event in which the faithful were allowed through the factory gates for a cruise up and down the boulevards that feed VW's Wolfsburg...

    The next-generation VW Scirocco will be a sporty-looking EV with styling cues borrowed from the VW I.D. Concept, according to a new report. The new Scirocco, which isn’t expected to arrive until after 2020, will supposedly ride on VW’s new MEB dedicated electric vehicle platform. AutoExpress...

    Back in June, for the 95 th time, racers and builders trekked to Colorado to race up a mountain road. The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is one of motorsport's great events. With more than a century of racing, reputations have been staked, legends made, and hopes shattered along the...

    We've all had this happen: we come across a car that needs attention and we think "If only I had the time/money/understanding spouse, I'd take that ride in and fix it all up." You see these cars and you can hear Sarah McLachlan's "In the arms of an angel... " playing softly in the distance...

    Another Scirocco for "Find of the Day?" When it looks this good, we have to share it. Throughout its lifespan, the Mk2 Scirocco had a number of special models, but the Scirocco 16V is easily the most popular. Introduced in mid-1986, the 16V upped the performance of this 2+2 substantially. The...

    9,000 rpm. 2,000 cc. 800 kg. 310 hp. Two wheel drive. These numbers, when considered together, tell quite a story. Somehow, though, their sum, this Mk1 Scirocco hillclimber, is so much more than those parts. I think we can all agree that, among the many reasons to envy Europeans, the strength...

    The Scirocco has always been an interesting chapter in Volkswagen's history. The sporty wedge was the antithesis of the model it replaced, the Karmann Ghia. The MKI Scirocco was front engine, front wheel drive, and it had actual power. It was right angles and creases compared to the sensuous...
