VW Golf R Cabriolet Concept: Shown at Woerthersee tuning festival

VW Golf R Cabriolet Concept

VW is showing a VW Golf R Cabriolet Concept at the Woerthersee tuning festival. Have a look!

There’s no word if this latest concept is headed for production, though such a possibility is certainly viable. The concept essentially fuses the best bits of the Golf R with the recently revealed Golf Cabriolet body, including a 270 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and 4Motion all-wheel drive system.

The 0-60 mph run will take you less than six seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. Unsurprisingly, this makes the Golf R Cabriolet the fastest open-top Golf ever.

Other R modifications include a lowering kit, which drops the car by more than an inch, as well as a 17-inch brake system with internally ventilated discs at all wheels and blue painted high-performance calipers. These reside within 19-inch ‘Talladega’ alloys shod with 235 tires.
