  The Volkswagen IROC concept car introduces the overall lines of the forthcoming model that will celebrate the return of the Volkswagen Scirocco sporty coupe.

- Back to the begining of the Scirocco

The Volkswagen sporty Scirocco GTI coupe entered production in the summer of 1976 before the Golf GTi that appeared on the market several months later. The development of the Volkswagen Scirocco started in 1974.

After 500,000 Scirocco I models had left the production line, its successor appeared in March 1981 – with a completely different look. It was the Scirocco II produced between 1981 and 1988. It was once again based on the platform of the Golf I, but the interior and boot were more spacious and the drag coefficient had been improved to reduce fuel consumption.

The Corrado was originally supposed to take over from the Scirocco II. Its development began back in 1981, at the time known as the Scirocco III. Yet a decision was made to rename the technically more sophisticated model the ‘Corrado' and make it available from 1988 onwards as a higher positioned coupé alongside the Scirocco II. The latter then finally retired in 1992.

After a long break, Volkswagen finally began producing a coupé again in 2008: the Scirocco III, based on the fascinating ‘IROC' concept car.
The latter had been presented two years previously at 2006 Mondial Paris Motor Show and proved highly popular. The powerful Viper Green Metallic colour in particular was so well received that it was later used for the Scirocco production models.

The Scirocco MK III built in Palmela (Portugal) was based on the platform of the Golf VI and was driven by modern turbo engines with power ranging from 90 kW / 122 hp to 206 kW / 280 hp (Scirocco R).
