Volkswagen Transporter Sportline 60 special edition celebrates 60 years of the Transporter in the UK

Volkswagen is celebrating 60 years of the Transporter in the UK with the launch of a new special edition model called the Sportline 60.

The Transporter Sporline 60 is available in short and long wheelbase forms as either a Kombi or panel van.

Replacing the the current Sportline, the 60 year special model exterior features unique 18-inch five-spoke Anthracite alloy wheels, black steel side bars, gloss black door mirror covers and special decals.

The interior comes nicely fitted with upgraded Kenwood sat-nav infotainment system with smartphone mirroring functionality, DAB and Bluetooth connectivity. There are also standard front and rear parking sensors with camera along with new quilted and embossed leather upholstery featuring a special Sportline 60 edition logo.

Carrying over from the standard Sprortline are the colour-coded front bumper and lower spoiler combine with a chrome grille, while at the rear is a roof spoiler, a colour-coded bumper and unique Sportline 60 badging add to the distinctive look.

The Sportline 60 is available in metallic Reflex Silver or Deep Black as standard. Candy White with a Deep Black roof is available as an option.

Power comes exclusively from a 177bhp 2.0-litre BiTDI with up to 40Nm of torque. Both six-speed manual and seven-speed DSG are available.

Prices start from £290,940 for the short-wheelbase panel, while the LWB panel van with a seven-speed DSG starts at £32,220.

The kombi range kicks in at £31,890 and £34,170 respectively for SWB and LWB.
