Speeding Back in Time: 1980, Turbo Thrills, and the VW’s Whirlwind Waltz!

Ah, 1980. The year Ronald Reagan first raced into the Oval Office, the Post-It Note became the unsung hero of hasty reminders, and CNN revved up its first broadcast. That very same year, the 1980 Volkswagen Scirocco S rolled out, sporting a 1.6-liter inline-four engine, now turbocharged by Callaway for an extra vroom. And guess what? You can take this time machine for a spin, if you dare, right here.

Full Throttle into Yesteryear, Parallel Parking Next to The Scirocco S

Diving under the hood of this Scirocco, you’ll find an engine that’s been souped-up like a disco diva hyped on glitter and grooves. Rejuvenated in 2019, its oversized Kolbenschmidt pistons and beefy cylinder head gasket are screaming, “Let’s keep this party rolling!”

But it’s not just about the turbocharged heart. The Bilstein coilovers shimmying with H&R springs are a nod to the disco inferno era. Tailor-made for a rhythmic riot, they promise a jive with every jolt and jaunt.

This vehicular virtuoso isn’t just a nod to automotive history, but a tribute to the vivacious vibes of 1980. A year not just marked by historical milestones but also by the USA’s detour from the Moscow Summer Olympics, steering clear due to the Soviet-Afghan War.

To wrap it up, the Scirocco S isn’t just a powerhouse on wheels; it’s a time capsule, a throwback ticket to an epoch of excitement. Whether you’re a part-time time-traveler or a connoisseur of classic cars, this Volkswagen Scirocco S is your gateway to 1980, ready for your test drive.
