It was 30 years ago that the first Scirocco rolled off the production
line. The model was typified by a strikingly sporty appearance. Volkswagen is now continuing this tradition with the
debut of the new GTS, delivering up to 155 kW (210 PS). Catching the eye immediately are the coloured stripes on the
bonnet, the roof complete with rear spoiler and the tailgate, designed in the style of racing cars of the 70s and 80s.
Red brake callipers (155 kW version), custom-designed front and rear bumpers, exposed side sills, body-coloured side
trim, exterior mounted rear-view mirrors colour coordinated with the stripes, burnished 18-inch ‘Thunder’ alloy wheels
with black trim, a sporty diffuser and GTS badges on the front mudguards finish off the sporty exterior. Inside the car
the dominant colours are black and red.
With the return of the Volkswagen Scirocco GTS the legendary golf ball gear lever knob is also making a comeback – it
wasn’t only a distinctive feature of the first Golf GTI, but also of the 1982 Scirocco GTS!
There are no plans, at the present time, for an Australian release of the new Volkswagen Scirocco GTS.
