2009 Volkswagen Scirocco – New Image Gallery, Including Interior

From the moment we saw the two leaked pictures of the all-new Volkswagen Scirocco flowing around the web (see here) we knew that it was a matter of time until we discovered more images. To be precise, we managed to find five more pictures of the Scirocco coupe-hatch (…) including two featuring the interior. Speaking of the Scirocco’s cabin, the dashboard comes straight from the Eos Coupe-Convertible. As you can see in the picture, the Scirocco is strictly a four-seater, with the rear passengers getting two individual sport seats with incorporated headrests.

The Scirocco will be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on March 4 with sales in Europe kicking off this autumn where it will be available with a wide range of petrol and diesel powerplants delivering between 122 and 200 Hp. -Follow the jump for the image gallery

Geneva Preview: Bentley Continental Zagato GTZ

Italian coachbuilder Zagato will introduce their latest creation based on the Bentley Continental GT Speed at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The Zagato GTZ features several distinct design elements like the concave roof, the rounded tail and a contrasting colour scheme that differentiates it from the standard Continental GT Speed.

Zagato left the Continental GT Speed’s engine and mechanicals untouched, with the 6.0-liter W12 engine producing 600bhp and 553lb ft of torque. For the time being the Zagato GTZ is just a show concept, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the Italian coachbuilder announced an ultra-limited run edition in the near future. –More pics after the jump
