The way things are going, Volkswagen‘s annual Worthersee GTI meet might some day be the R meet, with the German automaker continuing to roll out new high-performance R versions of its models.

With the Golf R and Scirocco R already in production, VW is showcasing a concept version of the Golf R Cabriolet at the VW fanboy get-together in Austria, using reaction to inform their decision as to whether or not the car will hit dealers.

Billed as the fastest open-top Golf ever, the car shares the same turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with the standard Golf R making 265-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, enabling a 0-62 mph time of under 6.0 seconds.

Along with some custom bodywork, the Cab gets a suspensions that’s been lowered by one-inch, 19-inch wheels with 235 wide tires and upgraded brakes. Inside, the interior is both sporty and luxurious with blue and gray sports seats as well as carbon and piano-black accents.

As of yet the Golf R Cabriolet has not been confirmed for production, but if there is sufficient demand it certainly will be as this “concept” is all but production ready.
