In order to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Golf, Volkswagen unveiled at the Auto China 2014 the Golf Edition Concept. As expected, this new concept car was extensively customized and comes with a new colour called “Magic Morning”, machine polished “Madrid” 19-inch alloy wheels, mirror caps finished in “matt chrome” and new badges on the B pillars that show an engraved laureal wreath with the number “40”.
The interior was also upgraded and makes the Golf looks like a business sedan. The Golf Edition Concept features leather upholstery offered in two colours: “St. Tropez” (bright as a sand beach) and black. The seats feature the centre panels up to the headrests wrapped in “St. Tropez” and upholstered with diamond-shaped stitching, while the seams have a brown hue.
The leather used for the side and outside surfaces is black. Brown leather piping in "Sevilla" forms the interface between the bright "St. Tropez" and the "black" surfaces. Wood was used for the inlays in the door trim panels and in the dashboard on the passenger’s side.
Moreover, bright St. Tropez" are the door inserts in leather, roof pillar panels, interior rooflining and arm rests. The décor for the centre console, instrument surrounds and the trims around the air vents has a high-gloss black piano finish.
In addition, the multifunction steering wheel is wrapped in black leather, just like the gear knob, while the floor mats adopt the diamond pattern of the seats. The interior design is completed by the door sill plates equipped with ambience lightning. [source: Volkswagen]
