Exterior of the Collectors Edition
The Collectors Edition concept car was painted in a very dark, very refined blue – “Moonlight blue pearl effect”. While the radiator grille of the production Golf was designed in black, here it is presented in the car’s color. In the wheels area, new 18-inch “Vancouver” alloy wheels are used. They can also be ordered as an option on the production car, and they were given a high-gloss polish for the Collectors Edition.
Interior of the Collectors Edition
The Collectors Edition is the first Golf in which natural leather is making its appearance. It adorns the seats (lateral supports of seatback, outer sides of seat, center panel and covers), the center armrest and door inserts. Walter de Silva took the natural leather color as the standard in applying a refined brown tone called “IOWA”. It is reminiscent of the elegance of hand-crafted Italian shoes. The leather sections of the sport seats – that are as sporty as they are comfortable – are offset by black piping; they are joined together by seams in “Natural brown” color. The seat’s outer side panels discreetly sport the embossed letters “WDS” – the initials of the chief designer.
Designers added decorative accents to the interior (including accent strips, surrounds of the air vents) in high-gloss piano lacquer to complement the overall harmony of the black trim. Made entirely of aluminum are the door tread plates embossed with the “Collectors Edition” signature – insignias of a one-of-a-kind car.
