2013 Volkswagen Golf R Cabiolet Revealed

The picnic basket has a powerful new turbo engine and all-wheel drive. Can you guess what we’re talking about?
Yes, the R version of the VW Golf Cabriolet has become an official machine, having been revealed in a sort of teaser video posted on the MyVolkswagen Youtube channel. No photos, no press information... nothing but a video.

The car looks pretty much the same as the concept that previewed it at last year’s Worthersee. It has the same body kit, exhaust and wheels as a Golf R would and a black fabric roof. The odd thing is, the car is quite clearly a variant of the Golf VI.

270 PS of power and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque should be delivered from the 2-liter turbo engine to all four wheel. Expect 0 to 100 km/h to come up in about 6 seconds and a limited top speed due to the roof.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
