Volkswagen is developing a new coupe to be released at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show.
UNOFFICIALLY, The coupe will be a 2+2 based on the Volkswagen Golf chassis and will use the same 1.4 liter twin-charged (SuperTurbo) engine as the Volkswagen Golf GT.
Although there have been a lot of rumours for sometime that VW is to ad a coupe model to its line-up, this is the first confirmation that the carmaker has such plans.
It will take its styling cues from VW’s 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show stunner, the Concept R. In production guise this 2+2 seater will also share its design with that of the new Eos coupe cabriolet and Passat.
The new coupe will share its underpinnings with that of the Jetta and it VW will offer it with three engine choices.
The entry-level model will get the company’s new 1.4-litre Twincharger FSI unit and it will also be available with the GTI’s 147kW 2-litre turbocharged engine. Under the bonnet of the range-topping model will the new 3.2-litre V6 engine of the Golf R32.
