Looks like it's a 5w-40 standard saps fixed interval oil. I don't think VW have ever created a spec just for a geographical area before so it would be a first. They must have it in mind for certain hardware surely...

It's their "robust engine oil" spec - designed for places with 'challenging' fuel quality. the only practical application right now is in Brazil, but other areas will likely follow.
