Starting today, the eagerly awaited Scirocco is available for order in the UK. With sales starting on September 1 the only available model from launch is the top of the range Scirocco GT with 200PS 2.0-litre TSI engine for £20,940 RRP on the road. Either 6-speed manual or autotated DSG transmissions are available. The Scirocco GT produces 207 lbs ft of torque from 1,700 rpm and allows the Scirocco to achieve a 0 to 62 mph time of 7.2 seconds and a top speed of 146 mph. Fuel economy is 37.2 mpg with CO2 emissions of 179 g/km.

Early in 2009 the Scirocco lineup gets a little variety with a standard trim level and two more engines: a 1.4-litre TSI 160 PS petrol and a 2.0-litre TDI unit with 140 PS and a combined economy of around 52 mpg. Both will come as standard with a six-speed manual gearbox, while the 1.4-litre TSI will also be offered with Volkswagen’s new seven-speed DSG gearbox.
