With an exclusive special model, Volkswagen celebrates the fact that the
Scirocco has broken through the magical barrier of one million units manufactured across three generations.
The Scirocco Million, painted exclusively in “Deep Black Metallic”, can be recognised by its sporty accent strip (in
the middle of the body), the exterior rear mirror caps painted in “Galvanic Grey” and its “Interlagos” 18-inch alloy
wheels with 235/40 tyres that are also standard (in China: “Spa” 17-inch wheels). The alloy wheels are delivered in
combination with a tyre pressure control display. Nineteen-inch alloy wheels of the “Lugano” type that are painted silver
are also optionally available.
The other standard exterior customisation features include R-Line bumpers, R-Line side sills, smoked tail lights,
“Million” stickers on the guards and rear windows that are 90% smoked (in China: 65 per cent).
On the inside, the special model features, among other things, a standard leather seating with contrasting seams in
“Snap Orange.” In sync with that: the black roof liner and the leather cover of the parking brake lever and gear lever
gaiter (also with seams in “Snap Orange”). Floor mats with colour-contrasting chain-stitch seams, stainless steel pedals,
entry plates with “Million” lettering and the accent strips made of brushed aluminium are likewise standard. The RCD 310
audio system provides the sound and up-to-date information.
The VW Scirocco Million can be ordered with three different petrol engines (TSI) and two diesel engines (TDI). The TSI
have output ratings of 90 kW (122 PS), 118 kW (160 PS) and 155 kW (210 PS); the TDIs develop 103 kW (140 PS) and 130 kW
(177 PS). With the exception of the 90 kW TSI, all engines can be combined with a dual clutch gearbox (DSG).
The first generation of the Scirocco Coupé was launched in 1974. Seven years later, in 1981, the second generation of
the Scirocco took off. It was built up to 1992. A total of 795,650 vehicles of the Scirocco I and II were built. The
comeback of the sports car came with the Scirocco III in 2008. Inside of just under five years, more than 204,350
customers the world over have opted for a new Scirocco. So the total of generations I, II and III total over the one
million unit mark.
The special edition VW Scirocco Million will not be sold in Australia. Production commences late this moth, but they
will be sold in Germany and China only.
