FASTEST OPEN-TOP GOLF: The Volkswagen Golf R Cabriolet will be the fastest open-top Golf yet.

Volkswagen is gearing up to launch its next hot hatch and a cabriolet version was spotted at the Nürburgring. Check out the Golf R Cabriolet.

It enables the convertible to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in "less than six seconds" and reach a top speed of 250 km/h.
