Volkswagen has revealed the new special-edition Scirocco GTS, with prices starting from £27,945

The special-edition Volkswagen Scirocco GTS has been announced. It stands out from the rest of the Scirocco range thanks to a distinctive pair of stripes that run the full length of the car from nose to tail.

Four exterior colour choices are available. Opt for white, and your stripes and door mirror caps are contrasting black and red respectively. Red cars get black stripes with white mirror caps, black cars have white stripes and red mirrors, while the grey GTS gets black stripes with red mirrors.

Other exterior extras include gloss black door handles, 18-inch alloys and a panoramic sunroof.

The Scirocco GTS is based on the Scirocco R Line, which starts from £25,915 but comes with black leather upholstery that features contrasting red stitching and GTS logos, a golf ball-style gearknob, a GTS-logoed steering wheel, special floor mats and extra gloss black interior trim.

All cars also get sat-nav, Adaptive Chassis Control, climate control and Bluetooth.

The Scirocco GTS can be had with either a 175bhp 2.0-litre TDI diesel (previously only available on the Scirocco GT) or a 207bhp 2.0-litre TSI petrol, and a six-speed manual or twin-clutch DSG gearbox.

Prices for the GTS start at £27,945 for the petrol manual and £29,345 for the DSG. The diesel-powered version starts at £27,980 and £29,395 for the DSG. Order books open on 2 January.
