Great Britain gets the VW Scirocco R-Line and GT Black Edition special series image

Volkswagen UK has recently introduced the all new Scirocco Black Editions, in R-Line and GT livery.

The Scirocco GT Black Edition comes with a contrasting black roof, black mirror caps and a black rear spoiler; while also deploying tinted rear windows and spectacular 18-inch Black Lisbon alloys. The Scirocco R-Line Black Edition mostly mirrors the same design cues as the first special series but comes packing a bigger option for the wheels – 19-inch Black Lugano. It also boasts the R-Line package that comes mated to more dynamic bumpers and modified side skirts. Inside the cabin the R-Line comes equipped with faux carbon fiber finishing touches, a sports steering wheel and Vienna leather sport seats. Pricing for the Scirocco GT Black Edition and Scirocco R-Line Black Edition goes from 23,135 British pounds (RRP OTR) and the company adds the special series are a value package as they come with a premium of just £550 over the regular GT and R-Line versions while boasting numerous styling changes.

The Black editions can be had with the entire range of Scirocco engines, including the 1.4-liter TSI with 125 PS (92 kW) or the 2.0-liter TSI with 180 PS (132 kW). Diesel options include the 2.0-liter TDI that boasts 150 PS (110 kW) or 184 PS (135 kW). The Scirocco 1.4 TSI comes mated exclusively to the six-speed manual gearbox and the more powerful versions can optionally be equipped with the six-speed DSG transmission.
