Volkswagen Launches Special-Edition Jetta TDI, New Beetle Coupe, and CC

Volkswagen has announced three more special editions for the 2010 model year. All three models are available now at VW dealerships.

The first model under the knife is the slinky CC, which emerges as the CC R-Line. As with the European version, the R-Line changes are mostly cosmetic: a new body kit and front spoiler, 18-inch wheels, tinted taillights, brushed-aluminum door sills, and a couple of R-Line badges. The package can be had on CCs powered by the 2.0T engine with either manual or DSG transmissions, for a cost of $29,590.

The Jetta TDI Cup Street Edition (pictured above) is as close as the average driver can get to the cars in VW’s diesel race series. The Jetta receives the Cup car’s body kit, stiffer suspension and grabbier brakes from the Jetta GLI, and 18-inch wheels with performance tires. Sportier seats and VW’s lovable TDI engine, coupled to either a DSG or three-pedal transmission, rounds out the package. The pseudo-racer can be yours for $24,990.

Finally, there’s the New Beetle Red Rock Edition. Volkswagen will make just 750 of these bugs, decked out in Red Rock paint with a black-painted roof—a color scheme that reminds us of a ladybug, actually. You also get an all-black interior, 17-inch wheels, and “sport suspension” for $20,390.
