Former rally driver Paddy McClintock test-drives a Volkswagen Scirocco for 'Motor Ways' on 27 February 1979. A descendant of the bestselling Volkswagen Beetle, the Scirocco was developed in the 1970s and there are versions of it still on sale today.
McClintock says it is a difficult car to place, because is neither a saloon nor a sports car. But it is also difficult to fault and has electronic ignition, "which is becoming increasingly commonplace". It has a beautiful line, is modern and "ideal for perhaps a family of two and one child".
'Motor Ways' was a motoring magazine programme with Paddy McClintock as presenter.
