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 (210 PS version), custom-designed front and rear bumpers, exposed side sills, body-coloured side trim, wing mirrors colour coordinated with the stripes, burnished 18-inch ‘Thunder’ alloy wheels with black trim, a sporty diffuser and GTS badges on the front wings finish off the sporty exterior to perfection. Inside the car the dominant colours are black and red. With the return of the Scirocco GTS the legendary golf ball gear lever knob is also celebrating its comeback – it wasn’t only a distinctive feature of the first Golf GTI, but also of the 1982 Scirocco GTS!
