The exhibition Wörthersee presents unique versions of the VW GolfMay 29, 2019
At the Wörthersee exhibition that is currently taking place in a small Austrian town 38, VW students presented two projects based on a hatchback and a VW Golf station wagon.
The German Volkswagen presented at the 2018 Wörthersee exhibition the concept of the powerful Golf GTI TCR, which a few months ago became a production model. A year earlier, at the same event, the concept premiere of the GTI was held, which also became serial by now and is available for purchase from VW dealers throughout Europe.
This year, it seems, VW does not plan to present such projects, but the company’s students will be there to showcase two exclusive cars assembled in a single copy.
Built by a team of students from the German brand, the Golf GTI Aurora concept is equipped with an upgraded 2.0-liter gasoline engine producing a whopping 380 horsepower. The drive of the car is only forward; a 7-speed DSG gearbox is installed as a transmission. Disposable car painted in livery Audi-esque Nardo Gray in combination with black trim on the back and decorated with mint green accents. Interestingly, the aerodynamic body kit was actually painted by hand.
In addition to the new look and more powerful TSI engine, the Golf GTI Aurora has a powerful 3500 watt sound system. Images of the interior are not available at the moment, but VW says that students removed the rear bench and changed the center console to accommodate new screens showing engine and vehicle data. In addition, a passenger-side tablet provides access to this information and sound system.
Another project is the VW Golf Estate R 4MOTION FighteR, which has existed in Europe for many years. This is not the usual version of the powerful all-wheel drive wagon. Motor power has been increased to 400 hp. This car received a 7-speed DSG “robot” and all-wheel drive system.
