Special Edition Volkswagen Golf R Hatchbacks
To keep the pot bubbling, Volkswagen has used this week’s 2011 Geneva Motor Show to debut four special versions of the Golf R. They include two versions painted in an exclusive ‘Oryx White’ and ‘Carbon Steel Grey’ color schemes, as well as a sports-inspired pair finished in ‘Space Grey’ and ‘Aplomb Blue’ respectively.
The Oryx White Golf R rides on 19-inch Talladega wheels and features an upgraded seat system derived from Volkswagen R’s ‘Exclusive’ program. The seat’s center panels have been color matched with the car’s exterior and trimmed with Nappa leather. Lateral seat supports in perforated leather give the seat and seatback an especially sporty elegance.

The Space Grey example gets 19-inch Talladega wheels, orange brake calipers and carbon mirror caps.
Inside is where this Golf R really picks up speed, however.
The driver and front passenger are treated to motorsport bucket seats trimmed in Nappa leather and featuring cross-stitched center panels reminiscent of the first Golf GTIs.
Finally, we have the Golf R finished in Aplomb Blue. This model is fitted with 19-inch Glendale wheels finished in Brilliant Silver. It also has door mirror caps, various interior accents and door sill plates finished in carbon fiber, as well as Nappa leather trim with contrasting blue stitching.
Let’s hope some of these goodies are offered when the first U.S. delivered Golf R hatchbacks arrive. For full details on the Volkswagen Golf R, check out our previous post by clicking here, and for our complete coverage of the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, click here.
