Volkswagen Unwraps Two More Golf R Concepts at Wörthersee Tour

If there’s one thing die-hard Volkswagen fans visiting this week’s annual Wörthersee Tour in Austria aren’t going to complain about, is the lack of Golf concepts. We have already shown you the Golf GTI Cabriolet and Golf R Cabriolet and now we bring you two more studies based on the flagship Golf R hatchback. The two Golf R Color concepts were first shown at the Geneva Salon this past March and were created to demonstrate the numerous customization possibilities.

The first example sports a mid-tone “Velvet Grey Metallic” exterior finish with polished 19-inch “Talladega” alloy wheels, orange painted brake callipers and carbon mirror caps.

The interior is distinguished by a set of two-tone motorsport seats with the shell finished in a black piano paint, and carbon fiber accents on the steering wheel, gear shift lever and the door sill plates.

The second Golf R Color Concept is painted in “Aplomb Blue” and comes equipped with 19-inch “Glendale” wheels that are new to the Golf line-up, while the exterior mirror caps, interior accents and the door sill plates are made of carbon. It also gets motorsports seats with the difference being in the color options.
