The Volkswagen Scirocco 16V needs little introduction. In the U.S., this was as hot as the A1 VW chassis ever got. If you really hoped that Doc was going to tell you to kick it to 88 mph and you were 18, this was as close to a DeLorean as you were going to get. But the 16V wasn’t just about 80s door stopper styling; it had some good for the day performance in the form of the DOHC 1.8 stuffed under the hood. Remember when cars proudly displayed their DOHC and 16V stickers? Okay, so it was a bit overdone, but it was sort of like a Boy Scout badge of speed. The Scirocco 16V was no exception to the rule even though it wasn’t the quickest wedge on the block. Still, most were thrashed and trashed so it’s not often a nice one comes around for sale, like this splendid Tornado Red example:
Engine: 1.8 liter inline-4
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 114,350 mi
Price: No reserve auction
This is the nicest 16 Valve Scirocco you will find, it runs like new. Rust free, a great collector car. It is perfect in every way. It really drives like a new car, tons of power and the motor sounds great. Need sunroof shade and sunroof a little faded. Other than that it really is perfect. It really should be in a new VW showroom. If you have any questions please call 518-229-7280, Shane. Look at pics, they show you how amazing the car is.
Okay, the good first. Seriously, it’s just very difficult to find an unmolested 16V Scirocco. Red is a great color for that car – I always seem to see black or white ones, and Tornado Red suits the design well and stands out from the crowd.…
