These pictures are seemingly the first official photos of the Volkswagen Scirocco, which will make its debut in Geneva as confirmed by is appearance today on the official premiere list of the Geneva Motor Show.

This car is big news, probably one of Geneva's most anticipated large volume production cars. By all means, it's got one heck of a reputation to live up to, if it is to step out of the shadow of its two memorable (Mk. 1 & Mk.2) 'Rocco fathers from the 1970s and 1980s.

These pictures, brought to you by autoscoops.eu, are seemingly the first official photos of the Volkswagen Scirocco, which will make its debut in Geneva as confirmed by is appearance today on the official premiere list of the Geneva Motor Show. The car (pictured) bears a strong resemblance to the aggressively styled VW Iroc concept, launched in August 2006, although the front end has been slightly toned down.

What do we know about the car so far, then? Since the launch of the teaser minisite at www.volkswagen.de just a few days ago, new information has appeared and these are the main details we expect to see:

  • VW Group's 2.0 TFSI four-cylinder turbocharged engine
  • A 1.4-litre TSI producing 122 bhp/ 91kW and a TDI choice
  • Seven-speed DSG gearbox
  • Proper sport seats (Audi S/RS style)

Stay tuned for more details!
