Mar 1, 2011

The wait is nearly over. Volkswagen's Golf R is going to come to US dealers by next year. Geneva got a sneak peak at four special models of the Golf R that we hope to see come stateside.

Geneva will get a first look at the Oryx white and Carbon Steel grey color swith coordinated Nappa leather interiors. Both vehicles ride on 19" Talladega wheels.

Inside, an elaborately upgraded seat system gives the Golf R its flair -derived from Volkswagen R program. Volkswagen has color-coordinated the center panels of the front seats and the rear bench with the car's exterior by using "St. Tropez" Nappa leather; this color is also used in the door inserts. Lateral seat supports in perforated leather give the seat and seatback an especially sporty appeal. The car has brushed aluminum trim inserts and displays the R logo on the passenger's side.

The Golf R is also being presented in a special Space grey with orange calipers and carbon mirror caps. This version will feature motorsport shell seats. They are upholstered in black Nappa leather; around the lateral seat supports toward the inside, as well as in the head section, the seating surfaces consist of anthracite Nappa leather. The cross-stitched center panels of the seats and seatbacks are a lighter grey. The back shell glistens in black piano paint. A refined contrast is formed by the piping on the side panels of the seat surface and the head section from the orange of the brake calipers.

The car's interior accents match the look of the mirrors: carbon. The same material is also used for the steering wheel, gearshift lever, inserts of the leather-trimmed sport steering wheel and the door sill plates. Black piano paint, on the other hand, is used on door panels behind the interior door handles, on electric window switch panels and the panel around the shift lever.

The last demo Golf R at Geneva is painted Aplomb blue. 19" Glendale wheels are equipped, and it also features the carbon mirrors and aggressive motorsport-style seats.

The new Golf R continues to look better. We'll give you more information and details as the date draws near to a North American model.
