Remember how much the 2006 ScIROCco concept rocked? Yeah, the production version was pretty too, and it’s aged like Keanu Reeves, but the original concept hasn’t aged at all. It’s even got an Audi mouth for some reason.

The ONE THING—and there’s only one but it’s a big one—that makes the Scirocco ugly is the production version’s atrociously thick A-pillar:

In the concept car, the inboard edge is disguised by a black trim piece, which makes the A-pillar seem slimmer. But maybe it was too expensive for production? Tons of regular cars do this so I don’t know what the rationale is, especially since the car is sold on its cool factor.

It bugs me to no end; and I’ve seen it in person. It absolutely kills the car for me.
