VW Reveals 5 Gnarly Concepts at SOWO

Volkswagen is ramping up for the summer enthusiast season. And in preparation for this, it revealed five enthusiast-inspired concepts at the SOWO: The European Experience in Savanna, Georgia, which ran from May 19 to 21.

First on the list was the Beetle Post Concept (above). This concept is based on the R-Line trim and fully decked out by BMX rider Alise Post. It boasts a pair of custom GW bikes, 19-inch Mr. Drama wheels from Radi8, a street performance coil-over spring kit from H&R, a habanero orange paintjob, and vintage lettering on the doors.

Next up is the Jetta GLI Nardo Concept, which takes the sleeper-favorite Jetta GLI and adds some custom ware. It includes a Nardo Grey paintjob, HRE wheels, the H&R street performance coil-over springs, and BFGoodrich G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S tires.

The Golf GTI RS Concept is definitely one of the more performance-focused of the concepts, mostly due to its completely stripped interior that has just a polished-aluminum floor pan and race-inspired seats. Other updates on this Golf GTI include the Rocket Bunny widebody kit, custom sheet metal to prevent wheel rub, Vossen wheels, a Thule carrier box, and low-profile roof crossbars.

The Golf R also gets in on the fun with its Heritage Concept. This model boasts stripes in the same color as the German flag and a white lower-rocker accent stripe, Vossen wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S tires, and an H&R sport spring package.

Rounding out the concepts is the Golf Alltrack Country, which takes the lifted Golf wagon and adds a 2-inch suspension lift, 15-inch wheels shod in BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires, additional fog lights in the lower bumper, a roof-mounted tent system with a flexible solar panel, a curved LED light bar, a solar-heated shower, an integrated entertainment system in the trunk, a custom LED light bar in the liftgate, three batteries in the trunk floor for keeping the entertainment system powered or charging USB devices, and a topography graphic wrap.

Of course, these are all just concepts, so there is no hope of these ever making it to production.
