A 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco sunroof coupe, 16V. Silver with a b lack interior. 81,000 original miles. Just purchased from California. A very nice and straight body.
The original interior is in excellent shape. Mechanically, the car runs and drives very well. It has always been well maintained. Comes with the spare tire, jack and all the original books.
“a hopped-up engine made the Scirocco 16V the fastest and most powerful Volkswagen ever. Multivalve engines were just entering the mainstream, and VW’s 1.8-liter was particularly advanced, with a slightly outrageous (for the time) 10.0:1 compression ratio requiring a knock sensor to guard against detonation; hydraulic lifters; sodium-filled exhaust valves; and oil squirters to cool the pistons. It redlined at 7200 rpm – a tach twitch below the highest-revving Ferrari V-8s of the day – and produced 37 percent more power than its similarly sized eight-valve counterpart.
A power rating of 123 hp doesn’t sound like much today, but with less than 2300 pounds to propel, the Scirocco 16V’s eight-second sprint to 60 mph was quicker than Porsche’s 944, which cost twice as much. The Scirocco 16V could even threaten BMW’s brand-new, 168-hp 325is.”
Any questions welcome.
