The color of 2013 Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabrio Austria is combined with Oryx White and Flash Red with contrasting red stripes for exterior. Also painted in red are the exterior mirrors and the brake calipers. The interior continues the same white and red scheme, but it has also been combined with black for an even more extreme look. Under the hood the car fitted with 2.0-liter engine was also tricked to deliver a total of 333 hp.
The apprentices realized their white-red color concept with attention to detail on both the vehicle interior and exterior: they chose Oryx White mother-of-pearl effect for the Cabriolet, with Flash Red stripes bordering the bonnet left and right, and on the vehicles side. The exterior mirrors are painted red, as are the brake calipers. The apprentices’ customized features further individualized the vehicle interior, for example the black-red-white Recaro sports seats with red “Austria” embroidering and red-white decorative trim, and white GTI lettering on the doors. The honeycomb mesh and air vent frames, the accented stitching on the leather steering wheel and the DSG gearbox’s boot are also in red, as are the seat belts. Even the floor mats have red bordering.
Projects such as the Golf GTI Cabrio Austria allow Volkswagen to give its best apprentices an opportunity to extend their knowledge. The “Austria” is the sixth “Apprentices’ GTI” to celebrate its world premiere in Reifnitz at the Wörthersee Lake. Previous models drew large crowds at public events, for example at the “IdeenExpo” exhibition in Hanover.
