2013 Worthersee Tour: Vw GTI Cabriolet Austria makes its debut

There are two reasons why the launch of the Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabrio Austria with 333 PS (245 kW) should be celebrated. First of all, this marks the first time for Volkswagen apprentices to have created a cabriolet for the GTI Festival at the Wörthersee Lake in Austria. Secondly, this is the product of the first ever collaboration between the junior talents of Wolfsburg and Osnabrück.

The 13 apprentices of four professions made a two-seater in red-white-red, which are the host country’s national colors. It took a year for automotive mechatronics technicians, vehicle interior fitters, technical model makers and paint technicians to work together to create the vehicle, starting from the early sketches to a global debut in Kärnten, Austria.

The standard Golf GTI Cabriolet was redesigned by four women and nine men aged 17 to 23 years old to their optical and technical specifications. The 2.0 liter engine produced 333 PS / 245 kW. The white-red colour of the concept was evident on both the interior and exterior. The Cabriolet received an Oryx White mother-of-pearl effect while its sides got Flash Red stripes that bordered the bonnet left and right.

Seat showcases two amateur racing cars at Wörthersee festival

Seat has unveiled two tuned road monsters at the ongoing Wörthersee festival – the Leon Super Copa and the Ibiza SC Trophy. Both cars are regarded as having the ability to compete with some of the world’s fastest cars, as they are based on their respective racing siblings. Based on the new generation of the Ibiza, the Ibiza SC Trophy is run by a 180 PS 1.4 TSI engine, with power transmitted to the wheels through a seven-speed DSG gearbox that features locking differential.

This transmission is operated from the steering wheel, just like the one used on the series-production model.  To better handle the lateral forces, Seat installed a modified oil sump on the 180 PS 1.4 TSI engine while fitting racing suspension running on 18-inch wheels covered with flared wheel arches. 

Inside the Ibiza SC Trophy, Seat employed a minimalist approach on its dashboard, showing only information that is relevant to racing drivers. With this specs, Ibiza SC Trophy could be considered the perfect starting machine for amateur racers.
