Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabrio Austria concept debuts at Wörthersee

Volkswagen apprentices showed a Golf GTI Cabrio Austria this past weekend at the Wörthersee Lake.

The Golf GTI Cabrio Austria is powered by a 2.0-litre TSI with 333 horsepower and was built by thirteen apprentices of four professions.

The one-off two-seater features a white-red exterior colour, new front spoiler, a revised rear apron and 19-inch alloy wheels.

Moving on to the interior, the apprentices’ added black-red-white Recaro sports seats with red “Austria” embroidering and red-white decorative trim, and white GTI lettering on the doors.

“I’ve learned a lot about project work, and how important team work is,” said the future automotive mechatronics technician Kevin Hoffmann when speaking about his time as a member of the Wörthersee team. Together with his colleague René Eichenlaub, he removed the Cabrio’s rear seats for a sound system with eleven loud speakers with 2,250 watts output.
