The special edition Swift Sport gets "Rock am Ring" branded logos inside and out along with a new entertainment system that comprises of a Clarion navigation system (TMC) with a 6.9-inch color display, 30GB of storage for music, an iPod adapter and more powerful speakers.

The Swift Sport "Rock am Ring" will be offered with a choice of three exterior colors - "White Pearl Metallic", "Cosmic Black Pearl Metallic" and "Supreme Red Pearl Metallic".
Production will be limited to 700 units with sales set to start in April at a price of €17,990.
