Volkswagen Scirocco III

Thirty four years after the premier of the original Scirocco, Volkswagen have released its third series. The idea is for this to be a sports car that can be used daily and is affordable to own and maintain. I personally find it drop dead gorgeous, to say the least.

Engine: I4
Displacement: 1,984 cc
Aspiration: Turbo
Power: 197 bhp (147 kW) @ 5,100 rpm
Torque: 207 lb·ft @ 1,800 rpm
Configuration: Front-engined, front-wheel drive
Weight: 1,298 kilo (2,861.6 lbs)
0 - 100 km/h: 7.1 seconds
Top speed: 233 km/h (145 mph)

I don't like it, it looks like a Golf that has been squashed.

True. But didn't the originals...?

But I owned a 1983 1.6 Scirocco in red, and that was a much cooler car than this thing, so I voted uncool because I prefer the originals by far and don't think the new range do them any justice.

Uncool. Quite liked the mark 2 but this one is truly muntastic. Golf GTI is way nicer.

My mate works for VW and had one of these come in for a service the other day, the guy had painted everything under the bonnet pink, painted all the centre caps a different colour and put on some cheap ****ty springs I did laugh when he told me!

I think actually there are plenty worse designs out there, but to me it looks like it's been left in the oven a bit too long (especially at the back).

I think it's cool. In fact, it's probably the coolest kid in its class. Saw a flame red one in London the other day, and it was a genuine head turner

Looks really cool and aggressive in the front but not so good at the back. Basically a GTi but with a better looking and less practical body that's cool in my book.

Probably go with cool, but not 100% so not voting

Looks very good from the front, less so from the back though. And when you get in close, I think it actually loses quite a lot in the detail.

Nice car but the chap who drives a white one near me who overtook 2 cars on the approach to a blind bend with oncoming traffic as he got half way past them was a ******

Seen a few in the flesh, love it, way cooler than the Golf and almost as cool as the Corrado
