Just seven days after the world premiere of the new Golf, Volkswagen presents a further facet of automobile fascination: The roadster prototype concept R. The design, sharp in every aspect, is in the style of an animal about to jump. This combined with the outstanding functional solutions indicates a view to the future of the Brand and possible commitments in the sports car segment.

Propulsion for the concept R comes from a V6 mid-engine; It returns 195 kW / 265 brake horse power and accelerates the roadster in 5.3 seconds to 100 km/h. Top speed: 250 km/h (governed; capable in theory of 270 km/h). The sound of the engine can be varied at the turn of a switch! The maximum 350 Newton metres of torque provided by the V6 are transferred to the road via the spectacular Volkswagen direct selection gearbox (DSG / 6-speed) and rear axle.
