After revealing the new Golf GTI Edition 35 in a world debut at W¶rthersee, Volkswagen is presenting the Golf R Cabriolet as a concept car with 270 PS of power and a top speed of 250 km/h. This power cabrio also demonstrates the inexhaustible potential of the Golf.
Golf R Cabriolet concept: Volkswagen just recently introduced the new Golf Cabriolet, and the designers and engineers of Volkswagen R GmbH have already come up with an extremely sporty variant of this model: the Golf R Cabriolet Concept with 270PS (199 kW) Cabriolet concept sprints from 0-100 km/h mark in less than 6 seconds and top speeds are also identical at 250 km/h. This makes the R Cabriolet the fastest open-top Golf ever. Even more impressive, however, is the engine’s tremendous torque – 350Nm from a low 2,500rpm make this cabriolet an ideal car.
Like the closed-top Golf R, the cabriolet was lowered by 25 mm via a sport chassis. A 17-inch brake system with internally ventilated discs at all wheels and blue painted high-performance brake calipers (including R-logo) enables impressive braking performance. Making contact to the road surface on the Golf R Cabriolet Concept are 19-inch Talladega alloy wheels with size 235 tyres.
