Volkswagen has released a special edition Scirocco ‘Million’ model, to celebrate the recent milestone of producing the one-millionth Volkswagen to carry the Scirocco badge.

Production started in 1974, and after eight years VW had built more than 500,000 of the Giugiaro-styled Mk1 Scirocco. The Mk2 went on for a further ten years and 291,497 units, until it went off sale in 1992.

The company revived the name in 2006 with a new concept, which went on to form the 2008 Scirocco. Now almost five years old, the current Scirocco has pushed the production total to over one million after a growing production run of 204,350.

To celebrate, VW has launched the ‘Million’, which gets R-line bumpers and bodykit, black leather interior with orange stitching and smoked tail lamps. There are also special ‘Million’ decals and tinted windows, although this special model will only be available in Germany and China.
