Volkswagen Concept R
The design team, led by Murat Günak (Volkswagen Brand
Group) and Peter Schreyer (Volkswagen Brand), shows with the roadster
concept R how a sports car packed with aesthetics and emotion could look
in the foreseeable future with the internationally successful "VW"
label. The 4.16 metre long, 1.78 metre wide and just 1.25 metre high
two-seater has a convincingly powerful body and an interior that
conquers virgin territory in terms of style in every detail.
The roadster prototype concept R. The great sharpness in
design, seen from every angle, combined with outstanding functional
solutions indicates what the Brand has in store for the future and also
a possible involvement in the world of real and genuine sports cars.
Propulsion for the concept R comes from a V6 mid-engine; It returns 195
kW / 265 brake horse power and accelerates the roadster in 5.3 seconds
to 100 km/h. If the propelling power was not governed to 250 km/h, in
theory, the top speed would be 270 km/h. The engine torque (350 Newton
metres at 2,800 rpm) is transferred to the road via a spectacular
Volkswagen direct selection gearbox (DSG / 6-speed) and rear axle.
Volkswagen Concept T
With the concept T, Volkswagen is continuing its range of innovative
design studies in 2004 as well. During the past decade alone, the
company has premiered a large number of the most spectacular concept
cars to grace the international automotive scene. They have provided
important reference points for future generations of vehicles; indeed,
many of them have been transferred directly into series production
In 1994 and in Detroit as well, for example, the
world’s attention was captured by the concept 1 – later to become the
New Beetle and the New Beetle Convertible (which debuted as a concept
car at the Geneva Auto Salon). World premieres in Detroit have a
tradition going back at least as far as the concept 1: Volkswagen
chose Michigan to show the AAC, a off-road pickup, for the first time.
