We have the full details, pricing, and release information about the VW Jetta TDI Cup Street Edition inside.
Volkswagen plans to bring the Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup "Street" Edition to US dealerships beginning next year. The production version is based on the concept shown off at SEMA 2008.
The vehicle has a similar body kit to the version shown off during previous TDI Cup races. Mods were made to the "front bumper, side skirts and rear valance," and large, red, caliper brakes were added. The brakes are covered by 18-inch Charleston wheels. Sport suspension and sway bars were taken from the GLI.
Power comes from a 140 horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine that generates a healthy 236 ft-lb of torque. It is paired to either a six-speed manual, or DSG paddle-shift transmission.
Interlagos cloth-lined sport seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel complete the package.
Pricing for the Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup "Street" Edition begins at $25,000. The car also qualifies for a federal tax credit of $1,300. It will appear in showrooms beginning January 2010.
