"Like other Volkswagen models of its era—namely the Jetta—the Scirocco derives its name from the wind; in this case, the Mediterranean Sirocco wind, which originates in the Sahara and can reach hurricane speeds in southern Europe. While the stock 1.7-liter 74-horsepower engine that powers the ’81 Scirocco S might not register on the Beaufort scale (the car tops out at a modest 111 mph), the Scirocco S proved to be a worthy replacement for its sports coupe predecessor the Karmann Ghia. The distinctive red VW badge and belt-line moulding set the Scirocco S apart from its standard model counterpart, along with a five-speed transmission, a front spoiler, and light alloy wheels. Visually and performance wise, it’s easy to see why VW customers at the time considered the Scirocco S a breath of fresh air."
—Official description[1]

The 1981 Volkswagen Scirocco S - abbreviated as VW Scirocco '81 - is a FWD hot hatch by Volkswagen that debuted in the December IGN Pack for Forza Motorsport 4 and returned in the Alpinestars Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 5. Since then it has been featured as standard in every subsequent main series title except for Forza Horizon 3.

Synopsis

The 1981 Scirocco was a liftback variant of the Volkswagen Rabbit for the North American market. The special edition S model debuted in 1980 and came with a sports appearance package along with a five-speed transmission as standard. It was replaced in 1982 by the second generation Volkswagen Scirocco.[2]
