E s is written on it, VW Golf R, under the sheet metal dress of the strong convertibles but the drive train of the VW Scirocco R works. This change was necessary because the convertible was not converted to an all-wheel drive train.
The VW Golf R convertible still has enough power. So 265 HP and 350 Nm pull from a two-liter TFSI engine on the front wheels. This should enable the open four-seater to spurt from zero to 100 km /h in 6.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km /h. Shifting is invariably with a six-speed DSG. The XDS front axle differential lock provides traction.
VW Golf R Cabrio with lowered chassis
Like the closed Golf R, the convertible has been lowered by 25 millimeters with a sports chassis. The 17-inch brake system has blue-painted calipers with the R logo. Road contact is ensured by 18-inch wheels, and 19-inch alloy wheels with 235 tires will also be available as an option. The look is pepped up with new aprons and side skirts as well as a new exhaust system and black exterior mirrors. Foldable nappa leather sports bucket seats provide more quality in the interior. In addition, there are various applications made of carbon and piano lacquer as well as door sills made of brushed aluminum and aluminum pedals.
The VW Golf R Cabrio had its unofficial premiere at the Wörthersee event in 2012. Officially, the VW Golf R Cabrio will then be presented at the Geneva Motor Show and go on sale in time for the 2013 convertible season. The VW Golf R Convertible can be ordered immediately. Prices start at 43,325 euros.
