VW Launches New Transporter Sportline Limited Edition X Model

The Transporter Sportline is the latest VW model to receive the 'limited edition' moniker with the release of the UK-bound "Edition X". In addition to the standard Transporter Sportline's standard equipment that includes 18-inch alloys, chrome grilles and side sills, leather seats and front and rear spoilers, the Sportline X models gain chrome and black 'Dakar' alloys, leather steering wheel and gear lever, specially designed black and blue leather seats with limited edition numbered tags, specific floor mats, and rear parking sensors.

Available in short and long wheelbase panel van or short wheelbase kombi, production of the Transporter Sportline Limited Edition X will be limited to 150 units for the UK with each vehicle individually numbered.

Buyers have a choice of two metallic paint colors, Reflex Silver, and for the first time for the Sportline range, Shadow Blue.

VW said that the Edition X costs only £500 more than the equivalent Transporter Sportline T30, 174 horsepower, 2.5-liter TDI PD models, with basic prices including metallic paint set at £25,065 for the short wheelbase panel van, £25,545 for the long wheelbase panel van, and £26,805 for the kombi.
