Available to order this spring the Volkswagen Golf R Cabriolet is set to be their fastest convertible to date. The Golf R Cabriolet is priced at £38,770 – the rest of Golf Cabriolet range costs from £21,040 for the entry-level S 1.2-litre TSI 105 PS, rising to £30,765 for the GTI 2.0-litre TSI 210 PS with DSG gearbox.
The Volkswagen Golf R Cabriolet is powered by a four-cylinder petrol 2.0-litre engine that produces 265 PS via the standard six-speed DSG gearbox. This will launch the car from 0-62 mph in 6.4 seconds on to a top speed of 155 mph.

The exterior features a unique front bumper with gloss-black grille and ‘R’ logo, LED daytime running lights, bi-xenon headlights with black housings, gloss-black door mirror casings and black-painted brake callipers with R logo. Side sill extensions, a gloss black rear diffuser with chrome-tipped exhausts either side and smoked LED rear lights.
The interior comprises four individual sports seats in ‘Vienna Cool Leather’ and ‘R’ logos in the head restraints, while the leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, handbrake grip and gear lever all have contrasting grey stitching. The pedals have brushed aluminium caps, while the doors and dashboard feature ‘Silver Lane’ aluminium decorative inlays.
