Illustration for article titled Helios Special Edition Jetta Is Retro-Fabulous

This year at SEMA Volkswagen has revived the "Helios" moniker from 1989 with the look to match, creating a MK6 Jetta that's delightfully retro.

Lovely diagonal stripes cover Recaros that harken to the VDub's of yore, the likes of which enthusiasts would be lucky to find in junkyards or Craigslist part-outs.


The new Helios features the same black-and-blue color scheme of the original, as well as a D-shaped steering wheel and shift knob that looks almost exactly like a golf ball.
