For more than 30 years, the ‘GTI Meeting at Wörthersee’ has been a holiday in the calendar of fans of sporty Volkswagen vehicles. An event that will also this year see fans from right across Europe coming to the largest ‘GTI meeting in the world’ in Austria. At this show of the superlatives, besides the Golf GTI Cabriolet, Volkswagen and Volkswagen Motorsport will be presenting the Polo R WRC, the Polo R WRC Street study plus two further Golf GTI concept cars.

Golf GTI Cabriolet

The key component of this highly dynamic soft top Golf is the 2.0 l engine with 155 kW / 210 PS fitted for the first time in the Cabriolet

Following its world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show, GTI fans visiting the legendary Wörthersee event will have the chance to experience close up the dynamic advantages and sophisticated equipment features of this sports car from Wolfsburg. The key component of this highly dynamic soft top Golf is the 2.0 l engine with 155 kW / 210 PS fitted for the first time in the Cabriolet. It is available with two engine/gearbox versions: as a manual gearbox or with the fast-changing dual-clutch gearbox (DSG), each with 6 speeds. A standard feature for all customers who get to indulge in the sporty driving performance of the Golf GTI Cabriolet is the XDS electronic differential lock on the front axle, which ensures perfect traction, enhanced agility and the utmost driving stability. To complete the picture, this hot hatch is fitted with 17-inch alloy wheels of the type ‘Denver’ (18-inch wheels of the type ‘Detroit’ are optionally available) in addition to a new diffuser with chrome tailpipes.

Polo R WRC Street

Polo R WRC Street concept car: 2.0 l engine with 220 PS

From motor racing to the street is the motto of the Polo R WRC Street concept car. At Wörthersee, Volkswagen will be presenting for the first time a preview of an extremely sporty small series, which is due to be launched in late 2013. With its highly unique and distinctive design, this model cuts an impressive figure with its rear spoiler, diffuser, sports suspension and an inscription with R-WRC logos. A powerful 162 kW / 220 PS 2.0 liter TSI produces motorsport-like performance.

With the newly developed Polo R WRC, Volkswagen Motorsport is presenting a road-going prototype for the FIA World Rally Championship

With the newly developed Polo R WRC, Volkswagen Motorsport is presenting a road-going prototype for the FIA World Rally Championship. The “hottest Polo ever” – as it was called by Volkswagen Head of Development Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg even at its first official airing – will be starting its tour around the globe from 2013 at numerous WRC races. At the heart of this racing version beats a 1.6 l TSI engine with approx. 220 kW / 300 PS power output, which ensures impressive acceleration from naught to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds.

Golf GTI ConceptWhite

The attractive design study Golf GTI ConceptWhite is characterized by its remarkable ‘Oryx White matt’ paintwork. The vehicle interior affords an exciting black/red contrast. In addition to the sports seats in Nappa leather, red contrasting stitching adorns numerous details such as the steering wheel, handbrake lever and door armrests. A door sill trim – with the GTI logo and honeycomb pattern in White Matt and Aluminium – go to complete the unique appearance of the Golf GTI ConceptWhite.

Golf GTI Black Dynamic

Black as the night, with a red/black color concept and lowered sports suspension, the Golf GTI Black Dynamic will be making an appearance at Wörthersee

Black as the night, with a red/black color concept and lowered sports suspension, the Golf GTI Black Dynamic will be making an appearance at Wörthersee. Since October last year, nine Volkswagen apprentices – four young women and five young men – have been working on their ‘Apprentice Golf GTI 2012’. Their objective: vehicle concept design, styling, engine version and numerous details are meant to convey their interpretation of a classic sports car. Elegant and simple but with numerous stylish details, the ‘Black Dynamic’ is a real head-turner. It also features a 1,800 Watt sound system with nine loudspeakers, which takes up the entire boot space. This year’s Golf GTI Black Dynamic is the fifth vehicle project to make its debut amongst the petrol heads in Austria.
