The special edition ‘Scirocco Tropic’ was available in 1986. Sales code S712.
It came in a choice of two unique metallic colours. Madison turquoise (LK6T) or Kiwi brown (LP6V). Avus wheels, body kit and mirrors were colour coded to the body, but not the bumpers. It had a wild two tone interior of olive and turquoise.
Power came from a choice of 1.6 and 1.8 carb or 1.8 injection engines, with or without Cat. The Beta stereo system was the standard unit. Only 2622 Tropics were produced, and they were never released here in England. The Tropic logo pictured above appeared on the B-pillar.
