Volkswagen's limited-run Scirocco R Wolfsburg Edition will go on sale in Australia from November 14, the car maker's local arm has confirmed.

Announced in August and named for the wealthy German city the company calls home, the special Wolfsburg Edition will see out the Scirocco badge in Australia.

The style-focused pack will be limited to 150 examples, priced from $49,490 in manual form and $51,990 when equipped with a six-speed DSG auto, both excluding on-road costs. The auto will be the more accessible choice, however, with the manual limited to 30 units.

In its regular form, the MY17 Scirocco R is priced at $45,990 for the manual and $48,490 for the DSG auto (both excluding on-roads).

Standard features for the Wolfsburg models include a black finish to the 19-inch Lugano wheels and wing mirror caps, while the cabin gets a "premium" multi-function instrument display and a numbered build plaque.

Sports bucket front seats are also included, which, as with the Ford Focus RS, sees the side airbags deleted. Unlike the RS, however, the Scirocco's seat is height-adjustable.

A panoramic glass sunroof remains a cost option at $1750, and just two colour choices will be offered: Oryx White Pearl Effect and Rising Blue Metallic.

Power is again provided by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, producing the same 188kW and 330Nm offered with the regular Scirocco R.
