The Golf GTI Cabrio Austria with 333 PS (245 kW) is a twofold premiere: it is the first time Volkswagen apprentices have designed a cabriolet for the GTI Festival at the Wörthersee Lake in Austria and it is the first ever collaboration between junior talents from Wolfsburg and Osnabrück. Thirteen apprentices of four professions built a two-seater in red-white-red, the national colours of the host country. Today, they are presenting their sporty open-air car to GTI fans from across the world.

The four women and nine men from 17 to 23 years of age redesigned a standard Golf GTI Cabriolet to their optical and technical specifications. The 2.0 liter engine generates 333 PS / 245 kW.

The apprentices realized their white-red colour 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 vehicle’s sides. The exterior mirrors are painted red, as are the brake callipers. 

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.
