Currently available for order, the high-performance model is distinguished by a honeycomb grille, aerodynamic side skirts and a rear diffuser. There's also tinted taillights, a dual exhaust system and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Moving on to the interior, the cabin is equipped with cloth seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, stainless steel pedals and black ‘Edge' trim.

Power comes from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that develops 210 PS (155 kW / 208 hp) and 280 Nm (206 lb ft) of torque. It can be paired to a six-speed manual or a six-speed DSG transmission.  This enables the convertible to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds and hit a top speed of up to 236 km/h (147 mph). In terms of efficiency, owners can expect to average 37.2 mpg UK with CO2 emissions of 177 g/km (36.7 mpg UK and 180 g/km with the DSG gearbox).
