2011 Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabriolet Concept

2011 Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabriolet Concept

Volkswagen has now presented the Golf GTI Cabriolet Concept in a world debut at Wörthersee - it is the first officially built open-top version of the icon. There are plenty of good reasons for introducing this extremely dynamic concept in 2011: this year, the Golf GTI celebrates its 35th anniversary, and the legendary GTI Meet at Wörthersee is taking place for the 30th time. 2011 is also the year of the new Golf Cabriolet. While the production Golf cabriolet can already be ordered, the Golf GTI Cabriolet Concept is still a concept. (continued below)

Visually, the fire red "Firespark Metallic" open-top GTI shows independent ways: especially noteworthy here are the add-on parts designed in shiny black piano paint. The concept's styling focuses on extreme precision with lines that appear as if cut by a razor. The add-on parts themselves are on the one hand delicate and light, but at the same time sturdy and integrally designed. A look at the front and rear spoilers or the side sills designed in the style of splitters used in motorsport shows this impressively.

Visual highlights: the front fog lights of the GTI gave way to air guides for ventilating the high-performance brake system that is used in the cabriolet. In side profile, the open-top GTI's look is characterized by black-silver 19-inch "Glendale" alloy wheels with 235 tires. They fill out the wheel housings completely, since the Golf's ride height was lowered with a coilover suspension. Another feature that stands out in side profile are the brake calipers painted "Tornado Red" with black GTI logos.

The concept car's interior was upgraded with "Black Stripe" pattern accents and Nappa leather seats with red GTI logos in the head restraints. The seams between the individual leather surfaces provide a sporty contrast; they are styled in "Flash Red" and "Crystal Grey". Two-tone door inserts were coordinated with the seat pattern. As on the interior door panels, fine red decorative seams also customize the leather-trimmed steering wheel and the trim of the gear shift and parking brake levers. This color is repeated in the red borders of the black safety belts and the black-red piping of the floor mats. Classic effects are achieved by aluminum door sill plates with worked-in GTI logo. By the way, the cabriolet's driving performance - with its 210 hp GTI engine - fully matches that of the closed-top GTI - i.e. right around 149 mph (240 km/h) and 6.7-second for the sprint to 60 mph.
