VOLKSWAGEN Scirocco MkI/II
The first in Volkswagen’s new front-wheel-drive generation, the Scirocco emerged as a smart and desirable Capri alternative. Styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro and engineered by Audi, it was a major departure for the Wolfsburg company that previewed the ultra-successful Golf. In fuel injected form (it shared its engine with the Golf GTI), it was quick and flighty. MkII version arrived in the early 1980s, and was far duller to look at, but less likely to rot, and as a consequence, there are many more around despite being less desirable.
