One of these Jetta models is a tribute to the 1989 Helios Special Edition Jetta GLI . As a reminder, the Helios Edition was built on the MKII Jetta, and VW limited it to just 1,500 units. The very special thing about this car was its Helios Blue paint that, depending on the light, could look navy, black or purple.
The special edition in Las Vegas features the same blue and black paint scheme, but it adds an aggressive body kit from FMS Automotive. This kit includes custom side moldings, a new rear spoiler and side mirrors all painted to match the Helios blue and black paint theme.
Under the hood, the Jetta GLI Helios Special Edition carries the all-new 1.8-liter, turbocharged four-pot that produces 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.
The model will be on display from November 5th to 8th at Volkswagen’s booth in SEMA.
