The Volkswagen Scirocco GTS will be presented at the 2012 Leipzig Auto International Motor Show. Fans and automotive journalists are excited by the news with many expecting the car to be best Scirocco yet.
A brand new generation
The new Volkswagen Scirocco GTS represents a whole new generation of the vehicle. It will come with various chrome features upon the bodywork. There will be neat touches such as dark red stripes around the vehicle, bringing back memories of the previous generation. The 18 inch alloys cover the wheel arches giving the car an extra intimidating look. The rear diffuser at the back of the vehicle adds more pedigree to the vehicle.
Interesting use of Black and Red
Many previews of the car have noted the interesting contrast between the colours of black and red. The carpets and seats are black with red stitching which is a very subtle and nice touch. The interior has the same type of effect throughout. The pedals are made of stainless steel. The steering wheel is made of leather straps as is the handbrake and gearshift lever.
Powerful 2.0 litre TSI engine
There will be a wonderful 2.0 litre TSI litre engine under the bonnet of the Volkswagen Scirocco GTS. The engine is able to blast out a tremendous 210 BHP with a peak torque of 280 Nm. There have been no performance specifications released as of it. They are expected to be similar to the Typical Scirocco, which contains the same engine. That will mean that the Volkswagen Scirocco will record a time close to 6.9 seconds when racing from 0 – 62 MPH.
Auto Mobil International Show
The exhibition at the Auto Mobil International show in Leipzig, Germany will be a very fitting tribute to the Mark II Scirocco GTS which was released 30 years ago. The design and style resembles that of the previous generation, with many old school fans praising Volkswagen for keeping the companies traditions. The retro features of the car may be what sets it apart from the rest of the range and may help increase demand.
No prices of the car have been announced. It is not know yet as to whether the vehicle will be a limited edition or will go on mass sale.
