VW Shows Off ‘R’ Version Golf Cabriolet
VW has revealed an R version of its latest Golf convertible at it’s Worthersee tuning event in Austria. The Volkswagen Golf R Cabriolet concept features the same 4 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine as the hard topped 3 and 5 door R versions.
Although no exact figures have been released for the Golf R Cabriolet, the company have said that it will get to 62mph from rest in under 6 seconds and go on to reach a top speed of 155mph, the same speed that the majority of German luxury models are restricted to but also a speed making the sporting cabriolet the fastest Golf cabrio ever made.
The vehicle has a ‘sports chassis’ which sits 25mm lower than the standard Cabriolet and it is shod with 19 inch Talledega alloy wheels. The car also gets ventilated brake discs and high performance brake calipers.
The interior of the car sees the use of carbon leather with contrastingly coloured Nappa leather, as well as sand-blasted aluminium door sill plates and a carbonfibre trim.
Volkswagen also showed off a GTI version of the Golf Cabriolet at Worthesee but because it was not an official launch event, no production dates or prices have been released yet.
