Volkswagen has released a pair of promo videos of its new and hotly anticipated Scirocco.

Video: Volkswagen Scirocco promo

The first of these two videos is a computer generated fly-by-wire tour of the Scirocco, and the second is a live action sequence boasting the performance of VW's newest model.

The front-drive Scirocco in the clip is powered by a 2.0 TSI engine, which could indicate a flagship V6 model has been scrapped.

This is mated presumably to the brands 6-speed DSG gearbox, where you can clearly see the steering-wheel-mounted paddle-shifts being used.
