2013 SEMA Show: Helios Special Edition Jetta GLI Tribute

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 6, 2013

Besides the Jetta Racer’s Dream, FMS Automotive also customizes another Mk6 Jetta, this time powered by the all-new 1.8-liter turbo engine. This model is actually a tribute to the 1989 Helios Special Edition Jetta GLI and comes in the same Helios Special Edition blue-and-black paint scheme as the late ‘80s original.

The color isn’t all, as the Jetta comes with custom body side moldings, a rear spoiler and side mirrors painted to match the Helios blue/black paint design theme. Golf R brake calipers featuring the “Helios” logo replace the standard pieces, while the 19-inch Volkswagen Motorsports wheels in ceramic gunmetal gray hide them.

For an enhanced sound and more style, a new custom exhaust system was added. Inside, we find Recaro sport buckets reupholstered in Helios-inspired blue, black and gray striped inserts.

FMS Automotive also reupholstered the back seats, steering wheel, handbrake, and shifter to match the Helios theme. The interior design is completed by the brushed aluminum pedal caps, aluminum door sills and the RNS 315 navigation system with rearview camera.
