VW launched the Iroc concept car on August 24th 2006. Utilizing the Eos chassis and modern VW engines, it was a working prototype of the New Scirocco.
In production form, the Iroc lost it’s oversized grill and full length glass roof but overall remained true to concept.
Internally, the Iroc took a few styling cues from the original Scirocco. Notably the deep recessed gauges and the three spoke steering wheel. Very little made it to the production stage.
