Volkswagen Blows Out Scirocco

VW has ended production of its historic Scirocco nameplate – for the second time.

The original Scirocco first debuted back in 1974, replacing the Type 14 and 34 Karmann Ghia.

For the new car, Wolfsburg switched styling houses, employing the talents of Italdesign’s Giorgetto Giugiaro.

A refreshed second-generation, this time designed in house, followed in 1981. Produced until 1992, it was pulled from Volkswagen’s lineup favour of the Porsche 944-baiting Corrado, in an attempt to take VW upmarket.
