The hot R version of the Volkswagen Scirocco is set to go on-sale in the UK later this year, and to commemorate the iconic coupe, we’ve gone back through the archives to bring you a Scirocco picture history.
The first-generation Scirocco went on-sale in 1974 and more than half a million units were sold before being replaced by the second-gen model in 1982. Although less popular, more than a quarter of a million units were produced before it was replaced by the Corrado in 1992.
The Scirocoo reappeared as the Iroc concept at the Paris motor show in 2006, before going into production two years later. The latest model, the Scirocco R, will reach UK showrooms in December.
