Volkswagen Scirocco going topless
Yes, you read it right! Eos is about to get a new brother: a coupe-convertible version of the Scirocco. Accordint to AutoExpress, the new model will be unveiled sometime in 2009 and in a concept version at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show, where the production coupe version will be unveiled.
With the upcoming two-door sports car, Volkswagen wants to challenge models like Porsche Boxster and Audi TT Roadster.
The decision of building a convertible version comes with no surprise, as the Scirocco shares its underpinnings with the attractive Eos.
The Scirocco Convertible will feature a complex folding hood mechanism, but this won’t affect the car’s distinctive styling. The rear seats are ditched to accommodate the roof mechanism.
Under the hood you will get the same options as in the Coupe version, but you will be able to transform the Scirocco from a refined, sporty coupé to a dazzling convertible in a matter of seconds.
