Volkswagen creates the Scirocco GTS


Scirocco GTSVolkswagen

Volkswagen has created a very eye-catching version of their Scirocco coupe.

Badged GTS, the car packs a unique specification that includes a pair of broad stripes running the length of the vehicle from bonnet to tailgate, red- or white-coloured door mirror caps (depending on body colour), bespoke 18-inch "Thunder" alloy wheels and a panoramic sunroof.

But don't think you can order the Scirocco GTS in any colour that takes your fancy, as only Candy White (with black stripes and red door mirrors), Salsa Red (black stripes, white mirrors), Deep Black Pearl (white stripes, red mirrors) and Indium Grey (black stripes, red mirrors) are available.

Adding to the fully-packed specification of the R-Line model, the Scirocco GTS comes with black "Vienna" leather upholstery with red stitching and an embroidered GTS logo, bespoke multifunction steering wheel with GTS logo, floor mats with red piping, GTS sill plates, Piano Black and Black Peak decorative facia inserts and Piano Black door handles. The classic GTI "golfball" gearknob appears too.

As on the Scirocco R-Line, equipment includes an RNS 315 satellite navigation, Adaptive Chassis Control, 2Zone Climate Control, MDI multi-device interface and Bluetooth telephone connection.

The GTS is available with either a new 2.0-litre TDI 175bhp or 2.0-litre TSI 208bhp engine, and a six-speed manual or DSG gearbox.

Prices are £27,945 for the TSI manual, £29,345 for the TSI DSG, £27,980 for the TDI manual and £29,395 for the TDI DSG. Ordering opens January 2, 2013.
