2013 FMS Volkswagen Jetta Helios GLI

Exterior Details

(from Volkswagen Press Release) Helios Special Edition Jetta GLI Tribute

As well as showing its ultimate street performance Jetta, FMS Automotive took another Mk6 Jetta featuring the all-new 1.8-liter turbo engine and built a tribute to the 1989 Helios Special Edition Jetta GLI.

With the exterior painted in the same Helios Special Edition blue-and-black paint scheme of the late ‘80s original, other key features from the fabled limited-edition model have been incorporated into the 2014 tribute. The VW accessories team provided a body kit for the Jetta and FMS Automotive added custom body side moldings. Other accent pieces, including the rear spoiler and side mirrors, are painted to match the Helios blue/black paint design theme.

Larger Golf R brake calipers custom painted with the “Helios” logo replace the stock pieces and 19-inch Volkswagen Motorsports wheels coated in ceramic gunmetal gray and wrapped with Nitto Invo 235/35 ZR-rated tires are employed on all four corners. A custom exhaust system was also added for more style and a performance sound.

Inside, Recaro Specialist seats were reupholstered in Helios-inspired blue, black and gray striped inserts. The back seats, steering wheel, handbrake, and shifter were reupholstered to match the Helios theme throughout the car while Corinthian custom textile floormats and a trunk liner with embroidered light blue “Helios” logo were installed. VW brushed aluminum pedal caps and aluminum door sills, the RNS 315 navigation system with rearview camera and a custom sound box with digital sound processer round out the long list of interior enhancements. The Helios Tribute Jetta will also be on display at booth #20255 in Central Hall from November 5 to 8.
