The time has come to mourn the death of yet another sporty car nameplate. This one doesn’t affect the North American market, and while inevitable, it’s kind of a bummer nonetheless. The Volkswagen Scirocco is no more.
The Volkswagen Golf is an MQB car, but so is the 265 hp all-wheel drive Audi TTS. Volkswagen always knew how to stretch a platform to its limits.
High on the list of forbidden Euro-fruit is the Volkswagen Scirocco R, a stylish and sporting hatchback that VW chooses not to sell in the U.S. for various reasons. But let's hope that mindset changes with the next generation because it could get even hotter.
Automobile's Jason Cammisa talks through the heart transplant he gave to his adorable little VW Scirocco 16V. It only took him 11 cars to haul parts for it, but whatever. The end result was worth it.
During last weekend's Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup race Dennis Rieger caught an inside corner, two-wheeled it across the track, and crashed into the wall. He's unharmed, though probably lamenting a potentially legendary save missed. If only for a little more runoff.
Aided by a vantage point made possible by the balcony of our European office, we discover that the VW Scirocco is a rather desirable coupe.
No plastic wheel matches the familiarity of a real car. That's why these Finnish geeks plugged a PC directly into this VW Scirocco's on-board computer and, with some clever coding and a projector, created an incredibly immersive gaming experience.
Check out that near-perfect three-way split for the VWs! That means you just never know how you'll do when you bring a Golf or one of its cousins to a LeMons race. Will it grenade the engine? Maybe! Will the electrical system poop out? Could be! Or will the car keep buzzing around the track all weekend? It's happened!
We're in the final hour of racing here at Thunderhill, and we can't say who the favorite is at this point. What we can tell you is that oil-coated VWs burn really well.
Automotive News Europe is reporting that Volkswagen may reverse course on the new Scirocco and offer the vehicle in the United States. VW execs originally opted not to sell the Scirocco here due to fears it would cannibalize sales from the GTI and because the strong Euro would have made the car too expensive. Since…
The new Volkswagen Scirocco may just be hitting the roads, but somehow tuner ABT Sportsline has already released their version of the swoopy hatch. Oh wait, no they haven't, these are just renderings. Yes, as has become common practice for tuners anxious to get a jump on the competition, ABT has resorted to releasing…
Answering the prayers of Vee-Dub fanboys, the new 2009 Volkswagen Scirocco is the first real VW sport coupe since the Corrado. There's just one problem: the car isn't available on our American shores. However, our friend John Mahoney over in the UK has driven it, and he seems to quite like it.
V-Dub has announced they are taking orders for their Euro-only 2009 Volkswagen Scirocco. While the latest iteration of the two-door sport hatch won't be getting the 325 HP engine seen in the 24-hour Nürburgring race-prepped Scirocco GT24, it will still be getting some respectable scoot.

You knew it was coming, and we've seen a head-on shot of the Volkswagen Scirocco GT24 race car, but now the full studio set is out for the ogling. The standard issue and Euro-only Scirocco has been modified with more turbo pressure pushing output to 325 HP, while the chassis has been widened and lowered, aero bits…
A lot of people think VW's upcoming Scirocco could use a little more oomph under the hood. The stock engines are rated from 122 HP to 200 HP, but this new version has a 300 HP version of the 2.0-liter TFSI inline-four.
