  • New Rocco

    VW has released to the German papers as on January 3 of this year that there is a prototype Scirocco and will make the *NEW* rocco available sometime in 2008. Engine choices are 2.0 16V, VR6, VR6 turbo and the W8 twin turbo expected to be released about mid-year 2009. Get ready for the price.... $54,000 AMerican dollars starting price. Probably means the W8 twin turbo will be somewhere in the $100,000 range. I guess I better start saving up!

    judging by the poor sales of the phaeton, VW wouldnt be wise to sell a car that expensive and expect different results.

      i love the new roccos. i think the phaeton didnt sell well because it looked like a plain sedan. i for one think the phaeton was a waste of time for vw. but thats just my 2cents

        The orange one reminds me of the 90-92 Corrado body lines with a 2006 Passat front end mated up front. The grey one is not even the same body style as the orange one. The rear side windows are not even the same shape. So I would assume the tail on the orange one does not look like the grey.

          The orange one is a Photoshop build from AutoBild.de of what they suppose it'll look like, while the silver ones from Auto Motor und Sport Magazine, it's thought to maybe be the first real photo of the car...not sure *Link*

          I've heard of this new "Scirocco" floating around for a while, honestly I dont think anyone has the right facts, its all speculation at this point. Im sure VW's considering it, it's just every car site is marketing what they believe it'll have to grab visits. We'll just have to wait till the official reports come from Wolfsburg.


          I like this pricing report from EuroCar-Blog... plus the TSI twin charged engine
          Auto Motor und Sport has a new computer-generated image of the next Volkswagen Scirocco, expected in 2008.

          The motto for the small VW coupè, as for its predecessors, is "driving fun at an affordable price". The price is surely affordable if compared to the VW Eos or Audi TT (22.000 € instead of 34.000 € as a starting price). Engines should start from the 1.4 TSI twin-charger (170 ps) and go up from there.

          The "affordable coupè" niche certainly needs some filling up in Europe, what with the absence of Honda, the Toyota Celica which is nearing retirement age and a generalized reluctance in offering small coupes instead of hot-hatches.

              If they aren't then they won't sell very many of them.
