WorldCarFans has the full story on four new units of the Volkswagen Golf R, on display in Geneva. Pics and details inside.
Volkswagen brought out four different variants of the Volkswagen Golf R to the Geneva Motor Show. Though none of the four have exceptional performance improvements, they do feature upgrades in aesthetic features.
Painted in Carbon Steel Grey, the first model is matched with an Almandine Red interior with Nappa leather touches. It rides on shiny Talladega style 19-inch alloy wheels which cover orange calipers. This orange color is also used on the piping around the seats and side panels. Interior furnishings include ergonomically-designed shell seats that are polished in piano black paint. Meanwhile, carbon fiber accenting on the gear shift, steering wheel and door inserts match the side mirror caps.
Several of these features are repeated on the model in Oryx White with a St. Tropez White interior. This car has better color coordination, doing away with the multiple color scheme of the Carbon Steel Grey model. The white car also has the Talladega 19-inchers, along with aluminum trim strips.
Two more models can be found in a separate lounge area of the VW stand. In bright Aplomb Blue, the Golf R looks a bit sporting, with several features in carbon fiber including the seat backs and door sills. This is replicated on the model painted in Brilliant Silver, both of which use black Nappa leather interiors with a blue leather accent on the seat.
Leather-trimmed sports steering wheels are found on all four models, each of which has specialized floor mats.
