1988 Volkswagen Scirocco 16V

This neat Scirocco is listed as selling on 2/20/22 for $17,700.

After a string of Corrados and one very cool early Scirocco, it’s nice to see a great example of the second-generation VW water-cooled coupe. There isn’t a ton of time left on this auction, and it looks like it’s going to sell – which, given the appearance of it, is no surprise. This white ’88 model is lowered and looks menacing with high-polished BBS RC wheels and Euro-spec goodies. Despite higher mileage, this one looks great – and bids have reacted:

Up for sale is my beautiful Alpine White 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco 16V that’s a blast to drive and gets looks everywhere.

Not sure on entire history (do have a stack of paperwork included) but having been in TX/OK and dry climates it appears to have never seen winter and is 100% solid with no rust underneath as well. Its super clean. Engine bay is super clean with fresh valve cover and intake manifold gasket. Timing belt was replaced in 2019 and is in great shape. I enjoyed driving the car and fixing a lot of things along the way so its ready for the next owner. It has been in the garage, insured with Hagerty, and only driven on beautiful days during my ownership.

Car is a great and very fun driver, very decent original exterior/paint with small flaws and touch-ups, touch-ups on hood and door dings, very good for 34 year old paint, front driver flare was just resprayed/blended to fix clear coat peel and matches nicely. The entire car looks good overall, very presentable, with a nice shine. With all that being said it still gets comments on how beautiful it looks every time its out. Nice interior, headliner has some tears in the rear portion from kids or loading stuff, two small cracks that started before I purchased on front portion of driver dash, not unsightly and dash is very presentable. I believe the front seats were replaced with Corrado seats, what I purchased with. The car looks, runs, drives, shifts, and handles awesome, you would never guess it has 200,000.

Comes with 3 keys, one with the 16V cover, original owners manual too. Heat works perfect, AC works but needs recharge, sunroof tilts but I have not tried to use farther than that and have been traumatized by VW sunroofs before, buyer can try after purchase if they please. Has a cheap stereo with an aux input/BT from previous owner. No holes cut for speakers in rear deck, it is mint.

It has rare 16” BBS RC 321 wheels (only sold in Europe) with new Nitto’s, Eurosport strut bar, excellent sounding sport exhaust, JOM coilovers, Urethane front control arm bushings, TT short shift, Eurobumpers, Eurolights (have original lights too), Neuspeed plug wires, silicone coolant hoses, almost new rotors with Brembo pads and stainless lines and fresh TYP200 brake fluid, I have a brand new Techtonics header not installed, authentic Nardi steering wheel with original wheel included and with other bits and parts included as well. I have the old CIS unit which was replaced if ever need for a rebuild/backup. Painted to match eyebrow for grill/lights. Replaced brake booster which had a vacuum leak and replaced. This is the why previous owners had trouble tuning the cars CIS system. New OEM fuel pumps, fresh bosch spark plugs, and a new brake switch because rear brake lights help too.

There has been a lot of work done to the car over the past year and it is ready to drive and enjoy. I have a clean NH title ready for the sale.

Thank you for looking and have a great day

I don’t think I’ve seen RCs on a Scirocco before, and I have to say that while the wheel design is really too new for the car in theory, boy it looks sharp! This one also has a bunch of little details that make it more special, like the Euro-spec bumper and lights, and while there isn’t an exhaustive photo presentation, it looks pretty good from what is shown. As a positive, it looks to be a relatively recent immigrant to the salty Northeast, as it spent a majority of its time in drier Southern states until ~2019.

Bidding at time of writing is $17,000 and looks to be a sale for this car, and not many have traded for more than that recently. If it actually sells for that amount it’s a fairly impressive result.
