This is the new Volkswagen Scirocco, a name which first came into the light back in 1974. Production of the sports hatchback continued all the way till 1992. However, Volkswagen have now decided to bring it back.
With a release date set before the end of the decade, Volkswagen America recently announced that they will not be selling the new Scirocco in the states. Why? because it might potentially eat away sales of the Golf GTI. Plus Americans don't like "little cars".
So from all of us here at CarAdvice we are asking Volkswagen Group Australia to please make a business case for this absolutely gorgeous car to come to Australia. It is simply too beautiful to pass up. Besides, if a car can look so good in green, it must be a work of art.
Current details suggest the Scirocco will be powered by a similar engine to that of the Golf GT with a possibility of a six- or seven-speed DSG gearbox.
Please Volkswagen Can We Have This Car? If not, maybe Subaru can hire the designer for the 09 facelift on the impreza. For those interested in hot hatches, have a read of our Golf R32 Review
