Production plans for the Volkswagen Scirocco have been confirmed and a concept model is expected to debut at the Paris Motorshow next month. Although this vehicle will be labelled the Concept S, we believe that this car will closely resemble the production version of the upcoming Scirocco.

The 2+2 coupe won’t hit the roads until at least 2008 and is expected to be built off an all new platform that will be shared with the next generation Golf. To emphasize its sporting intentions, the Scirocco will come with several performance engines including an enhanced version of the 2.0-litre turbocharged FSI as well as the potent R32's 3.2-litre V6. Power levels will be up around the 260 to 300 bhp mark for the range-topping models.

VW will still offer a conventional six-speed manual but we suspect the majority of buyers will opt for the award winning DSG clutchless manual transmission. See our previous post of the IROC for more concept images.
