Mk2 – GTS

Comet blue Scirocco GTS

The German GTS of 1983. It was a pre body kit model and had a large GTS decal down each side and colour coded GTS B-pillar logos. 1.6 carb and 1.8 injection engines were available. This was the first Mk2 to have the black B-pillar covering. The Scirocco script is featured on the tailgate glass. Colours available were Mars red, Comet Blue, Diamond silver, Cosmos Metallic and Papyrus Green metallic.

The GTS had the same ‘VOLKSWAGEN’ decal as the Mk2 Scirocco Storm.

The UK GTS of 1985. It had the 90bhp 1.8 carb engine. The body kit is unpainted, and it has single headlights. The tailgate spoiler is the interim version.

Total price when new was £7194.69.
