The Volkswagen Concept R roadster was a 2003 concept which
was shown at the Frankfurt Motorshow in Germany. The Concept
R was powered by a mid-mounted V6 mated to a six speed
Exterior styling of the Concept R is dominated at the
front by the multiple grilles feeding air back to the
engine. Behind the cockpit two racing humps flow into
the bodywork giving the R a more sporting appearance.
The interior of the Concept R is highlighted by an organically
shaped chrome console and instrument cluster.
The seats of the Concept R are not adjustable themselves,
instead the instrument cluster, steering wheel and pedals
adjust electronically. For the passenger an electronically
adjusted footwell support is provided.
