The third-generation [sic] Scirocco brought a new level of performance to the Giugiaro-designed two-plus-two. Adding to the strong base of the excellent chassis shared with the original hot hatch, the Volkswagen GTI, the Scirocco now sported a few extra valves per cylinder. The resultant 124 [sic] horsepower made the Scirocco 16V the most powerful VW ever and with an RPM redline that rivaled the highest-revving Ferrari V8’s of the era, it was a screamer. To accentuate the role, VW dressed the body with a full kit including fender flares and a functional rear window-splitting spoiler. Sixteen-valve engines were all the rage in the late 1980s, but VW’s 1.8-liter engine was particularly advanced. Volkswagen ran with 10.0:1 compression, hydraulic lifters, sodium-filled exhaust valves, and oil injectors to keep the pistons cool. With the heart to run against the best the other German marques offered at twice the price, the Scirocco 16V did not disappoint.
— Official description [1]

The 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco 16v is a fastback by Volkswagen that debuted in the Mobil 1 Car Pack for Forza Horizon 2, and featured as standard in Forza Motorsport 6 and Forza Motorsport 7.

Synopsis

The 1988 Scirocco 16v was the coupé variant of the Mk2 Golf GTI, replacing the 1981 Scirocco S that was based on the Rabbit GTI. Powered by a 1.8 liter 16-valve engine with 123 hp (92 kW), the 16v was the quickest model available of the second generation Scirocco.[2]

The second generation Scirocco ended production in 1992, and was joined by the more upmarket Volkswagen Corrado in 1988, which eventually replaced the Scirocco in 1992.
