Deriving its name from the Mediterranean wind, Volkswagen began work on the Scirocco during the early 1970s as the replacement for the aging Karmann Ghia. A three-door, front-engine, front-wheel-drive, sport compact hatchback manufactured and marketed by Volkswagen in two generations from 1974 to 1992, the marque was more recently revived for a third generation from 2008 until 2017. A heavily redesigned second generation Scirocco, still assembled on behalf of Volkswagen by Karmann of Osnabrück (in the same factory as the first generation Scirocco, Karmann Ghia, Karmann Cabriolet and some Porsche models), was first shown at the 1981 Geneva Motor Show in March that year. Designed by Volkswagen's own internal design team, the new car featured increased front and rear headroom, increased luggage space and a reduction in the coefficient of drag. Eleven different engines were offered in the second generation Scirocco, some related to the Golf GTI specification and other platforms in the VW range (L, GL, GTI etc). Performance-orientated model designations included the GTI, GTS, GTX, Storm and Scala. The Scala moved up to replace the GTX c.1987.

Initially, the Scala was offered in two colours, Paprika Red or Alpine White, expanded in 1988 with Helios Blue Metallic or Sapphire Metallic, again with matching sport seat upholstery and door card inserts. Sunroofs and central locking were optional extras. The Scirocco Scala which was fitted as standard with the GTi gearbox, optional sunroof, 14″ Avus ‘Snowflake’ colour-coded (inner spokes) alloy wheels, and further colour-coding including the body kit, mirrors and the interior. Scirocco sales continued until 1992 in Germany, the UK, and some other European markets. 'F880 YHG', a 1989 Volkswagen Scirocco Scala, is finished in Paprika Red with a matching Carmine Red cloth interior. Pleasingly still retaining the original 14″ Avus ‘Snowflake’ colour-coded alloy wheels and its Blaupunkt radio, the Scirocco is said by the vendor to drive and perform well with a good interior and exterior and no known faults. Offered with a current V5C and two sets of keys, the Scirrocco is fitted with a manual sunroof making 'F880 YHG' a nice prospect with summer ahead in the hands of a new owner.
