Volkswagen Golf R Cabriolet concept

The 2011 Volkswagen Golf R cabriolet concept was presented at Worthersee, where the German car manufacturer has arrived with an entire fleet of new models. The Cabriolet appeared as fascinating with its delivery of 270 PS of power as well as a maximum speed of 250 km/h, thus demonstrating the inexhaustible potential of the Golf. What appears to be even more impressive is the engine's tremenduous torque of 350 Nm from a low 2,500 rpm, which make this cabriolet an ideal cruiser. Via a sport chassis, the engineers lowered the cabriolet by 25 mm, while impressive deceleration values were enabled by a 17-inch brake system with internally ventilated discs at all wheels together with blue painted high-performance brake callipers. Its interior is sporty with motorposrt seats in dark blue carbon leather combined with high-end Nappa leather in "Pure Grey", while the sand-blasted aluminum door sill plates featuring black piano paint inlays display finely crafted skills. Parts of the back shells of the motorsport shell seats also feature carbon. Two versions of the Golf R Concept attracted the views at Worthersee, the first one being special by its "Velvet Grey metallic" exterior, polished 19-inch "Talladega" alloy wheels and orange painted brake callipers together with mirror caps. The sophisticated "Aplomb Blue" was used to paint the second model of the Golf R Concept and the 19-inch "Glendale" wheels are new to the Golf line-up shine in "Brilliant Silver". The exterior mirror caps, various interior accents and the door sill plates are made of carbon.
