Volkswagen GTI Cabrio Concept chases Golf R Version image

Last week at Worthersee festival, the Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabriolet concept was unveiled and now it is drawing plenty of attentions towards itself. Well, we must consider that Volkswagen has been offering enormous reasons to the GTI fans to celebrate its 35th birthday.

The GTI Cabrio is very much similar to the Golf R Cabrio concept with two-door hatchback offering turbocharged 2.0 liter engine which delivers 208 horsepower. The automaker claims that this car can make 0-60 mph in less than 7 seconds. As far as the additions are concerned, the car has got some unique touches such as ‘Firespark Metallic’ paint job along with piano black body kit accents, red brake calipers, a lowered ride height, and black-silver 19 inch ‘Glendale’ wheels.

The seats from inside are covered in Nappa leather and holds GTI logos that can be found in the headrests. Besides, door trim, seat, hand brake seams, and steering wheel has received contrast stitching. Volkswagen has purposely chosen this car for the festival so that they help celebrate some of the anniversaries for the GTI. This year, the car marks its 30th annual ‘GTI meet’ at Worthersee, whereas, the Golf GTI marks its 35 birthday.

Apart from this, the automaker has also unveiled the GTI Edition 35 at the festival that holds essential visual embellishments as well as more power boosting from 207 hp to 232 hp, coming out from a non-tweaked 2.0 liter turbocharged engine. Enthusiasts in Germany will enjoy the closer glimpses of the Edition 35 since it will be available there later this month. Yet no official words are heard about whether or not this car will be available at the States. Well, more uncertain is the production model of the GTI Cabrio concept. All depends upon the Volkswagen’s decisions.
