1980 Volkswagen Scirocco S

$_57 (6)

I’ve always been massively attracted to the original Scirocco. The Giugiaro design is late-70s simplistic beauty at its best, an aesthetic almost entirely lost these days (although pleasantly approximated by the new Lamborghini Huracan). This well-modified 1980 example keeps it simple with black-centered 3-piece BBS wheels and a minimal rear spoiler. Not a line out of place, and the excellence continues inside with beautiful plaid seat inserts. This is not all show, however, as the attention to greatness includes any VW fan’s laundry list of Mk1 improvements. Yes, I love GTIs, GLIs, and Rabbit Pickups, but Sciroccos like this are the Mk1s I lust after.

I want this Scirocco! The right color, the right wheels, the right generation, the right modifications – yes, this is the right VW. You’ll have to decide what the right price is however. A greedy person could easily ask over $10k here, but $9,500 seems not too far off for such a gem.

    She is a peach
    If she does not sell at this go round
    Just wait for a proper presentation
    I’m selling because Racecar
    Check out Scirocco MK1 Oldschool on Facebook
    The orange Roccy Racecar needs a VR6 and $ so Red needs to go. Or maybe not. A lot of time into her
