    Always loved this body style, but despite owning A2 GTi's and GLi's in the late 80's/early 90's, I've never owned one of these. They were hard to find in good shape even back then.

    Gotta say though, if I got one now, it would have to be a 16v variant.

    Kaibeezy: shuh-ROCK-oh

    Cambridge University: /ʃɪˈrɑː.koʊ/ (no one likes a smartypants)

    scirocco.org : it's an Italian word pronounced cee-ROH-co (which is fine in Italy, but how should Muricans pronuonciate it?)

    howtopronounce.com: S-IHRAAK-OW (srsly?)

    anonymous commenter on Autoblog: there are multiple ways (OK); I say SERA-ko (no way)

    CTRnutter on sciroccocentral.co.uk: Sir Rocco

    merriam-webster.com: shə-ˈrä- kō, sə-ˈrä- kō (ə as u in abut; ä as o in mop; ō as o in go)
