Volkswagen unveiled its enthusiast show fleet for 2017 at Southern Worthersee (SoWo): The European Experience on Hutchinson Island, Savannah, Georgia this weekend.
The car enthusiast event is open to all European makes and models. In the past it was held in Helen, Georgia and is inspired by the famous car meeting in Reifnitz, Austria next to Lake Worthersee.
There are hundreds of cars to check out at both shows, but here are five new models from VW that are worth a look. If you miss them at SoWo, they will be traveling around the country at other car shows this summer.
Golf R Heritage Concept
The Golf R Heritage concept sports a retro stripe package in the colors of the German flag with a white, lower rocker accent stripe pattern. It rides on Vossen VWS-1 wheels in matte gunmetal and polished anodized silver.
The wheels wear G-FORCE COMP-2 A/2 tires from BFGoodrich and the Golf has been lowered on sporty H&R Springs.
Golf GTI RS Concept
Sam Dobbins, Vossen Wheels creative guru, crafted this Golf GTI RS Concept with a Rocket Bunny widebody kit. Inside, the stripped down interior showcases a polished aluminum floorpan, and race-inspired red seats.
Dobbins’ concept rolls on Vossen wheels and features a Thule carrier box with custom, low-profile roof crossbars.
Jetta GLI Nardo Concept
The Jetta GLI Nardo Concept is wrapped in Nardo Gray and currently rides on FF01 Flow Form series HRE wheels finished in Tarmac.
The Nardo has an H&R Springs Street Performance Coil Over system and BFGoodrich G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S tires.
Beetle Post Concept
BMX rider Alise Post designed this concept based on the Beetle R-Line trim and added two custom GW bikes for the project.
The Habanero Orange Bug rolls on 19-inch Mr. Drama Queen wheels by Radi8, and uses an H&R Springs Street Performance Coil Over system to lower its stance.
Golf Alltrack Country Concept
The Golf Alltrack Country concept has all-wheel drive, a 2-inch suspension lift, and rolls on 15-inch wheels with BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires. VW says additional fog lights are integrated into the lower bumper and a hitch-mounted Thule T2 Pro XT bike rack carries two Trek Stache 9.6 mountain bikes.
The crunchy concept comes with a roof-mounted tent system, topped with a flexible solar panel, curved LED light bar, and a solar-heated shower. Inside the trunk, there’s an integrated entertainment system, custom LED light bar, and three batteries that are charged via the solar panel. Nice.
