Grounds for Celebration: TV scientists convert VW Scirocco to run on coffee

This is what we mean when we say that the future of alternative fuels isn't anywhere close to being decided. A team from the BBC program Bang Goes the Theory has rigged an older Volkswagen Scirocco to run on coffee pellets. It's a bit complex, with the coffee grounds needing to be heated to 1,292 degrees Fahrenheit, and the resulting concoction cooled, separated and filtered before it's run to the engine. Because coffee con

From diesel to natural gas: Jetta TDI Cup winner off to Europe for Scirocco Cup

Will Timmy Megenbier be able to reproduce his diesel-powered success in the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup in the natural-gas-powered Scirocco Cup in Europe next year? The answer lies only in the young driver's hands, now that he has announced that he wants to "continue his climb of the motorsports ladder," (as VW put it) in Europe. The Scirocco Cup uses Bio-Clean natural gas to power Scirocco "R" models and is now "the world's most eco-friendly one-make racing series." Compared to the vehicles i

Auto Express is reporting that the Golf MkVI is now scheduled to be unveiled in Paris next fall; six months later than the original plan to debut the car in Geneva. Here

Spy Shots: VW Scirocco hits the 'Ring

After subjecting us for years to dull econo hatchbacks and even blander sedans, Volkswagen impressed the automotive world when it took the covers of its Iroc concept. The vehicle featured an aggressive front-end, a powerful brooding stance and fluid surfaces, but at the same time it was instantly recognizable as a VW. Now the production version of that car has been spotted undergoing some high speed testing at Ge

Give it to us straight: VW exec says Scirocco may be U.S.-bound afterall

It's hardly been a week since we told you that the sexy VW Scirocco wouldn't be coming stateside, and now it seems VW of America vice president Adrian Hallmark may have been premature in his assessment. Now VW spokesman Hans-Gerd Bode is telling us that the big cheese, VW Chairman Martin Winterkorn, will have the final say in this matter.

VW unveiling sc-IROC-co concept in Paris

Volkswagen will reportedly be unveiling a concept called "IROC" at the Paris Motor Show, according to VWVortex.com. The name is an obvious tip-off that the concept will likely be the predecessor to the production Scirocco that Wolfsburg is planning. VWVortex reports that the look will be a cross between the Eco-Racer concept with a John Neff

Report: Volkswagen Scirocco green-lighted

After a seemingly interminable number of artist renderings and computer-generated 'spyshots' (including the shot seen above), AutoWeek says that Volkswagen has given the neo-Scirocco the go-ahead.

We reported earlier about Auto Motor und Sport's revelation that the VW Scirocco would start at under $28,000. Since then the mag's artists have created additional renderings detailing what the revived Scirocco might look like. Auto Motor und Sport has often hit close to the mark when it comes to foreshadowing designs, so you're looking at the best guess possible. The Scirocco will stick within centimeters of the Golf's (err... John Neff
