At Worthersee GTi show in Austria where manufacturers go to show off their latest GTI concepts, Volkswagen has released 3 new concepts. One of these is a special edition Golf GTi to celebrate 35 years of the iconic Golf GTi and the other two are both cabriolets, one of which is a Golf GTi cabriolet and the other is the Golf R cabriolet and if released it will become the fastest ever golf cabriolet.
Volkswagen has said that they will see how the public reacts to the new car and if they see enough interest they will seriously think about a production model. As Volkswagen currently have all the tools in place as they already build the hard top version of the Volkswagen Golf R and judging by the amount of visitors that swamped the Volkswagen stand at the Worthersee GTi show in Austria to see the Golf R cabriolet, we should expect to see the Volkswagen Golf R Convertible available on lease very soon.
Details about the Golf R cabriolet are pretty much I identical to the Golf R hard top, what has a 2.0 litre TSi engine that produces 266bhp delivered via Volkswagens four wheel drive system, through either a 6 speed manual gear box or seven speed automatic DSG gearbox. The Golf R Cabriolet will match the Golf R hard tops 0-62mph time of 5.9 seconds and go on to hit the 155mph limited top speed which will make it the fastest Golf cabriolet.
The second VW Golf cabriolet revealed at Worthersee GTi show in Austria was the Volkswagen Golf GTi Cabriolet. Based pretty much on the current Golf GTI with the only difference being the concept Cabriolet GTi has larger alloy wheels, a much more aggressive bodykit and a twin stainless steel exhaust system which exists underneath the rear diffuser. As the concept Golf GTi was fitted with a 2.0 litre 207bhp engine that can already be found in the current Volkswagen Golf cabriolet line up a Volkswagen spokesman said it would be highly unlikely the Golf GTi Cabriolet concept would ever make it to production. But he did reveal that the Golf GTI concepts body kit, larger alloy wheels and styling features could possibly be optional extras in the future.
