Volkswagen introduced the top five special carsMay 21, 2018
The design of four of the five concepts uses a fluorescent yellow theme as a key element. The show was presented at the SOWO exhibition, held from May 17 to 20 on Hutchinson Island, located on the Savannah River in the state of Georgia, USA.
The body of the concept of the Volkswagen Golf R Abstract is covered with a unique camouflage film. The hatch is equipped with a set of exclusive 20-inch FR wheels in Mystic Black color from ABT Sportsline and a set of sports suspension springs from H & R Springs, which lowered the ground clearance by 2.5 cm. ABT specialists also equipped the car with side skirts and a “four-barreled” exhaust system from stainless steel with matt chrome black exhaust ports. Inside the customized carbon steering wheel BAK Performance Mk 7 with blue stitching Golf R.
Another concept is based on the Volkswagen Jetta R-Line 2019 model year and received the name SoCal and design based on the Mk2 Jetta. The car features a fluorescent yellow body of side mirrors, a glossy black roof with a geodesic fluorescent yellow design and white wheels for body color with yellow accents. The car was equipped with a prototype ST XTA coilover system from KW, which allows to reduce the ground clearance of the car by 3 inches (about 7.62 cm), as well as a set of 19-inch wheels fifteen52 Formula GT.
The conceptual crossover Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line Aero also received camouflage film on the body, 3P Air Management System pneumatic system from Air Lift Performance, which allows to reduce the clearance by up to 4.8 inches (12.2 cm). A set of black matte 20-inch Rotiform Monoblock CCV wheels with a powder top coating layer and a Thule Motion XT Alpine roof rack covered with a similar bodywork and mounted on the Thule AeroBlade Edge system are installed.
The fourth concept is the Volkswagen Arteon R-Line Highlight. Liftback was equipped with 20-inch Hybrid Forged HF-2 wheels from Vossen and a prototype of the adjustable suspension Ultra Low Coil Overs from H & R Springs, which allows to reduce the ground clearance by almost 3 inches (7.5 cm). The body of the machine is covered by a fluorescent yellow film that emphasizes the black glossy and chrome trim elements of the R-Line package.
The last was the concept of a large Volkswagen Atlas Tanner Foust SEMA crossover, equipped with large tires and off-road wheels, extended wings and protective pads on the lower part of the body. The recycled bumper increased the angle of patency, which improved the protection of the bottom. The machine was also equipped with additional lighting equipment in the bumper and on the roof, and on the roof an expedition grid, access to which is carried out through the ladder, which is attached to the stern. The only change in the cabin was the checkered inserts in the upholstery of the seats, reminiscent of the legacy of the GTI line.
