Could it be? Internet scuttlebutt has surfaced recently suggesting the gorgeous Volkswagen Scirocco could be closer to Australian reality than first thought.
To date we’ve been lead to believe it’s too hard, the price isn’t right, Volkswagen Germany doesn’t want to play ball. Or that maybe the only way to get the Scirocco down under is the Ã¼ber R20T version, based on the Studie R. Perhaps you could import one yourself from New Zealand. The United States have lucked out.
But, now, thanks to a few simple words on the pistonheads forum, Australian readers have been given renewed hope. According to this post the Scirocco is undergoing local evaluation and could be in Australia later this year, or possibly 2010. The demand appears to exist for the car. Even as far back as May last year AUSmotive readers were in full support of the Scirocco landing on our shores. Go on Volkswagen Australia … you know it makes sense!
A selection of images follows below, just to help keep that Scirocco dream alive.
