Shown the concept Volkswagen Golf GTE HyRACERAugust 21, 2020
Volkswagen revealed the Golf GTE HyRacer, one of the custom projects to be shown at the Wörthersee GTI event in May this year, canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It is worth noting that the HyRACER show car, built on the basis of the hybrid Golf GTE, was developed by interns from Volkswagen Group Retail Germany for several months.
On the HyRACER exterior, trainees outfitted the car with a custom tuning kit consisting of a front apron, front splitter, fender liners, a rear apron with diffuser, a roof spoiler with integrated brake light and dual exhaust system. In addition, the concept is equipped with adjustable suspension and original 19-inch alloy wheels.
Regarding the interior of the show car, here the trainees used Alcantara on the “tidy”, door panels, steering wheel and center console. In addition, the interior features sports seats with integrated headrests and an embossed GTE HyRACER lettering in blue, which also features stitching throughout the interior, as well as a unique logo created by trainees.
The trainees, in particular, modified the HyRACER engine, increasing the output from 204 to 247 hp.
In addition, it was recently noted that the German company Volkswagen is testing a “charged” wagon Volkswagen Golf R. According to assumptions, the German automaker should demonstrate the new wagon as early as next year.
