Pictures of the new VW Scirocco have been leaked out ahead of the car’s official debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

Although clearly influenced by the IROC concept car shown in 2006, much of the styling has been toned down for the production version.

At UK launch in September this year, the Scirocco will be available with the Golf GTI’s 2.0-litre T-FSI petrol unit producing 200 PS, with prices starting at around £20,000.

We also anticipate a 3.2-litre V6 version using the Golf R32’s powerplant, and at least one high-power diesel version.

We’ll have more details over the next few days.
