Does a little extra fairy dust help the ageing Volkswagen Scirocco R retain its shine?

2015 Volkswagen Scirocco R DSG Speed Date

My German date accompanied me around Sydney on a whirlwind visit to the harbour city from my Melbourne home. Fun fact: Scirocco is the word used for a hot and dusty breeze that blows from North Africa across the Mediterranean.

Volkswagen Scirocco retires

The most recent iteration Volkswagen Scirocco has been laid to rest, with the coupe-styled sibling to the popular Golf quietly ending production this week. Despite still being on sale up to this point, the Scirocco is actually based on the 'PQ35' platform that underpinned the fifth- and sixth-generation Golf, along with the most recent 'A5' Beetle...

2016 Volkswagen Scirocco R Wolfsburg Edition review

This is my second VW Scirocco. In late 2016 my 2013 Scirocco R lease was coming to an end, and Volkwagen released this final Wolfsburg edition... so after a brief scan of the market for other options, I decided to continue with VW and this limited edition model. My particular car is a 6-speed manual in Oryx White Pearl paintwork, and I also ticked the sunroof option...

2015 Volkswagen Scirocco R review

I bought this car because I was looking for something reasonably luxurious yet sporty, and could satisfy my need to drive something with a bit of performance but also be daily driven around town. I was initially after a MK7 Golf R, but my budget was around the $42–$45K mark, which at the time put the Golf R slightly out of reach...

2011 Volkswagen Scirocco R Review

Your walking around the dealership, and after a little while everything looks the same...then it grabs your attention, low slung, wide, curvy Beyoncé like hips, the 19 inch rims fill the guards and callipers that suggest this thing can do something special. So you jump in, and within 30 seconds of the test drive, you know this is it...
