Auto Motor und Sport is postulating that the resurrected VW Scirocco will be here by 2008 and cost approximately 22,000 Euro, or around $28,000 US. At that price the Scirroco's main competition in Europe will be the beautiful Alfa Brera. The near future will be bring both these cars to the U.S., as well. The Scirocco's price also reveals that it will slot right between the Golf and new Eos hardtop convertible. If the accuracy of this rendering can be believed, we shouldn't expect the angularity of the original Scirocco to return along with the name.

      Here is my standard comment when a VW is the topic..."Please buy one of these and let us know if it is still a horrible mistake..."

      Thanks

      What happened to the old Scirocco concept?

      Damn it, I want *THAT* one!

      TDI for this? While VW is part of VAG, I really don't see VW having a diesel powered performance model. To do so would steal thunder from Audi.

      too much money for wrong wheel drive

      I like the previous artist's concept as well. This one looks far too much like a stylized Golf and even though I own one (2006 GTI), I think that the Scirocco needs to be more distinctive.

      And this isn't VW concept art. Take a pill and read carefully, Finished.

      if they were talking about 20-25k for this car then it would be exciting but this is a horrible idea at almost 30k. its not even going to be rwd. i thought vw learned its lesson to give audi room to reach down market.

      bhtooefr is correct, the earlier Scirocco concept was far better looking.

      With the return of the Scirocco, another car from my youth ( in additon to the Opel GT ) is coming back. If only these sequals were as iconically, yet pleasingly designed as the originals.

      At least they got the Ford GT right. And except for the chunkiness, so too, the new Mustang.

      Myself, I'd rather have the old Scirocco concept, BTW.

      You know, the one here: http://www.autobild.de/erlkoenige/neuheiten/artikel.php?artikel_id=10265

      What a gorgeous design! I love concave door panels and appreciate the high cost and complexity of the singular metal panel necessary to get this sophisticated look. The Ford Taurus and the Kia Sepia had this effect too, and it classed up both. The lovely brush of a line along the beltline side panels/door is tasteful and artistic. The sexy rear hatch looks nothing utilitarian, and the rear window is expensively curved. The side window lines hide the B pillar effectively creating a hardtop glass effect, dropping off with the tapered to the rear roofline. The wheel well arches are completely filled with tire, no off road, visible suspension look here, everything is tailored and well aligned.
      The only problem I have is the sill lip along the side does not flow into the sill lip of the rear. It looks like a load in the pants, and not attractive at all. It's an aggressive rear treatment, but not matched to the rest of the car. Either the line should be lifted to flow from the side sill, or it should just be smoothed into a lovely curve, forget the droopy lip.

      It looks like a photochopped R32. I think that the real Scirocco will be a little more than just a Golf with a chopped roof.

      Im kinda curious about this car, see theres an apparent conflict of interest here:

      VW GTI is prolly the parent of this platform. It also forms the basis of the upcoming TT. Both cars get a VR6 version, both get a 1.9t base version. The TT will prolly also get an uprated 1.9t.

      So if you have a basic hatch at one end, and a lux sport coupe on the other that will possibly spawn a sportwagon... whats the point of the Scirocco? Granted, if this car was going to be a lightweight alternative to both the GTI and TT, with a spartan interior and aluminum components then I can see a case for it...
