Reports say that VW will debut the Golf GTi Cabriolet at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Its arrival would also mark just the second time that a GTI convertible has been offered–the last was the MKk1 version sold during the 1980s.
It will get not just the GTI’s 2.0-liter turbo with 208bhp – which has been on offer already in the Golf Cabriolet – but will also get all the rest of the GTI goodness, like DSG ‘box, big alloys and the proper GTI chassis.
It also had the Edition 35’s LED lights, plus an aggressive bodykit with bespoke front and rear bumpers and side skirts, autoexpress reports.
But if that’s not enough, VW is also tipped to be preparing the hotter, 268-horsepower, all-wheel-drive Golf R Cabrio for production as well.
The Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabrio would cost approximately 32,500 euros — 4,800 € more than the hatchback version. The R version will start at approx. 42,000 euros.
Unfortunately, with Volkswagen choosing not to offer the latest Golf Convertible in the U.S., it’s highly unlikely that a limited run of GTI Convertibles would be.
