Volkswagen's new GTI Cabriolet was revealed at this year's Geneva Motor Show, but before that, it made an appearance in concept form at the 2011 Worthersee tour.

Alongside the cherry red performer was a Cabriolet version of the Golf line's hero model: the Golf R. But while the topless GTI is already hitting showrooms, the droptop R is nowhere to be seen.

That could be about to change however, with new spy photos suggesting that the GTI Cabrio will soon have a powerful new brother.

Details are thin on the ground, but with these new images following earlier renderings from a Chinese-market patent application, it looks clear that the new performer is on the way.

Apart from the absent roof, the Golf R Cabriolet concept is largely identical to its production counterparts.

Under the bonnet, the story remains the same. Power is provided by the regular Golf R's 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine, offering the car's full European-tune 199kW and 350Nm of torque.

In Australia, our warmer climate moved Volkswagen to detune the R to 188kW and 330Nm of torque.

Volkswagen says the R Cabriolet concept will hit 100km/h in 6.0 seconds, with an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h.
