2015 Volkswagen Scirocco Coupe Re-Imagined by Design Student

|

The development of the VW Group's new MQB modular platform architecture and its use on the seventh-generation Golf hatchback (among other models) combined with the fact that the current Scirocco Mk3 will soon enter its fifth year of production, means that a new model is brewing at the German automaker's headquarters in Wolfsburg.

We haven't seen any prototypes on the road yet, but Marcus Classen, a German design student who is pursuing his Master's degree at the Royal College of Art in London, UK, came up with a proposition of what VW's next compact coupe could look like.

"Work for a quick two-week sketching project in which I chose to design a new Volkswagen Scirocco 4, which is heavily influenced by the original Scirocco MkI and the Corrado," says Classen in the his description.

The original Scirocco was presented in 1974 receiving an extensive makeover in 1982 (considered a second gen model, despite using the same platform as the Mk1) and remained in production until 1992, even though VW had effectively replaced it with the more upscale Corrado in 1989.

As for the fourth generation Scirocco depicted in these conceptual drawings, VW officials have expressed a strong interest to offer the car in North America, though a final decision has not been made. If it does get the green light, we expect it to be built alongside the Golf Mk7 at VW's Mexico plant to keep prices down to reasonable levels.

I like it. I'd love to see the next Scirocco return to a more angular, coupe like rear.

Nice proportions blending current design language of modern Scirocco with that of past Corrado. I truly hope VWNA brings the next-gen Scirocco to US shores preferably with an R edition that's high output & AWD. Good job Marcus.

Current Scirocco is a nice hatch, but I'm guessing VW doesn't want it in the States for fear of cannibalizing sales of the Audi A3.

This is so right

Obviously very stylised but looks too heavy to me and the back end is bland.
Think I prefer the elegance of the present model.
