Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabrio might hit Geneva Motor Show image

The GTI Cabriolet version of the popular Volkswagen Golf might make its official debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

The German based automaker Volkswagen is planning to unveil the Golf GTI Cabrio at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show next month, according to some unofficial sources within the company. The concept version of the new Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabrio has already made its debut, last year, in Austria, at Worthersee, but the production version of the model is close to be unveiled, and this might happen before the new generation will be presented at the Paris Motor Show in September.

We don’t exactly have any details on the upcoming drop-top Golf GTI, but the model which made its debut last year at Worthersee was powered by a 2.0 liter engine which was developing a total output of 210 horsepower and 280 Nm of torque. Volkswagen said that the Cabrio can have the same performance as its brother and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 240 km/h. The concept car came, besides with the soft top, with an aggressive body kit, but chances of hitting the production line in that shape are currently limited.
