Inside and out, the Golf GTI "Wörthersee 09" combines charming and unique visual looks with an even higher level of performance - it embodies precisely those elements that have always excited genuine GTI fans.
The exterior paint shimmers in the special glowing red colour "Firespark Metallic", which is repeated as a fine trim line on the high-gloss black 19-inch alloy spoke wheels and in the classic GTI stripes of the radiator grille screen.
Other very distinctive body details: an entirely new smoked LED taillight design; its unmistakable graphic design from the rear adds to the Golf GTI concept car's independent character.
The interior of the two-door GTI is inviting too. Initial eyecatchers: high-end aluminium tread plates with "GTI Wörthersee 09" signature. The next special feature: trim in brushed aluminium and glossy black painted frames around the air vents. The floor mats have red borders as well.
The newly designed sport comfort seats with their integrated head restraints are an absolute interior highlight. They excite with innovative cover materials and a fresh colour composition.
This includes black nappa for the outer surfaces and flash red nappa for the seat side supports, bordered by light "Berry White" leather piping. The seat centre panels are made of Hexagon; one feature of this high-tech material, which is so pleasant to the touch: its exceptional breathing properties.
The "Wörthersee 09" Edition GTI was also intensified technically in the direction of performance. The lowered sport chassis enables maximum curve speeds. And the acoustics is not short-changed either: the new sport exhaust system provides for an extra measure of dynamic sound.
When it comes to the turbo engine, the GTI "Wörthersee 09" relies on the new 2.0-liter TSI with 207 hp. This gives the concept car a top speed of 238 km/h and 6.9 second acceleration to 100 km/h.
Polo "Wörthersee 09": Sporty vision in red and black
Volkswagen is also presenting a study that is based on the new Polo - the "Wörthersee 09" concept car.
Visually, this study offers an initial impression of how a sport version of the new compact might look. It should be noted that it was always part of the successful model series as the Polo GT, Polo G40 or Polo GTI.
From a purely technical perspective, the display piece is based on the 1.4-liter MPI version engine with 85 hp. Its unique aspects are to be found in the details:
Just like the Golf GTI Edition, this Polo stands out with its extroverted "Flash Red" body colour. In addition, two black rally stripes command attention; they extend over the front end, the roof and back to the rear.
The sporty, generously sized alloy wheels are the last detail. The black 18-inchers in "Budapest" styling are making their appearance with polished spokes; they generously fill out the wheel housings of the lowered chassis.
The radiator grille screen, mirror caps, backdrop of the headlights and insert in the lower bumper known as the "buckle" all offer a dark contrast. And the sport exhaust system pleases with its optimized sound.
