Drop top concepts seem to be all the rage at this year’s Wörthersee Show, with a few different companies bringing their variations for all to see. Volkswagen’s contribution to the pack is their new Golf Cabriolet package, but applied to their more powerful Golf R variant. The jury’s still out on whether this concept will end up on the production line, but with an output of 266 HP, a top speed of 155 mph, and a 0 to 60 mph sprint of under 5 seconds, the Golf R Cabriolet Concept is the fastest open-top Golf ever.
The concept features the same treatment that was applied to the standard Golf R model, including a sport chassis that lowers the car’s ride by 25 mm, a 17-inch brake system with internally ventilated discs at all wheels, blue painted high-performance brake calipers, and 19" "Talladega" alloy wheels with size 235 tires. Then the vehicle gets its top ripped off to create a more wind-in-your-hair feel.
The interior gets shell seats in a dark blue carbon leather that is then combined with high-end Nappa leather in “Pure Grey.” Other features include carbon fiber accents and sand-blasted aluminum door sill plates with black piano paint inlays.
Now this is a car we would like to drive on a hot summer day!
