|The Volkswagen Scirocco has reached a milestone – the ‘millionth’ milestone. The Volkswagen Scirocco first came out in 1974, then the 2nd generation took off from 1981 – 92. A comeback of sorts came in the form of the 3rd generation Scirocco in 2008, which commanded 204,350 units globally as at early 2013.|
To commemorate the millionth Scirocco milestone, Volkswagen came out with an exclusive version of its compact sports car variant. According to the Wolfsburg based marque, the production of the millionth-edition Scirocco will begin at the end of this month.
The Millionth Scirocco, available in “Deep Black Metallic ” can be recognized at first glance 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; the Chinese Millionth Scirocco gets “Spa” 17-inch wheels). The alloy wheels are delivered in combination with a tyre pressure control display. 19-inch alloy wheels of the “Lugano” type that are painted silver are also optionally available.
The other standard exterior customization features include R-Line bumpers, R-Line side sills, smoked tail lights, “Million” stickers on the wings and rear windows that are 90% smoked; the Chinese version has 65%.
In the interior, the Millionth Scirocco features, among other things, a standard leather seating (type “Vienna” in black) 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 color-contrasting chain-stitch seams, stainless steel pedals, entry plates with “Million” lettering and the accent strips made of brushed aluminium are likewise standard on board. The RCD 310 audio system provides the right sound and up-to-date information.
The Volkswagen Millionth Scirocco if offered with either petrol (3 versions) or diesel (2 types,TDI) powerplants. Power output, with DSG gearbox, ranges from 122 – 210 PS for the petrol versions and 140 – 177 PS for the TDI versions. Only the base Scirocco (122PS) doesn’t include DSG.
The Volkswagen ‘Millionth’ Scirocco is exclusively for Deutschland (Germany) and China. The base price of the Millionth Scirocco is 27,325 euros.
