Volkswagen’s first dedicated coupe for more than a decade has been caught testing at the famous Nurburgring track in Germany.
Drive’s spy pictures confirm the Golf-based Volkswagen Scirocco coupe will be near identical to the daring Iroc concept that previewed the new VW at the 2006 Paris motor show.
The front and rear camouflage can’t disguise a body shape that in 2008 will become the lowest, sportiest-looking car in Volkswagen’s line-up.
The third-generation Volkswagen Scirroco – the original version debuted in 1974 – will have similar dimensions to the Iroc concept, making it slightly longer than a Golf. A longer wheelbase and wider tracks aim to give the coupe sportier handling than a Golf GTI.
