Recently launched, it's only a matter of time until tuners get their hands on a Volkswagen Arteon and make it their own. Until then, we'll have to satisfy our modification needs with these renderings by Zoki Nanco on Behance.
Perhaps due to its slammed suspension, the rendered Arteon looks to have beefier front and rear bumpers along with a set of concave wheels and new tires. The body seems to have been painted a pearl white colors with black/grey trim instead of chrome.
Looking at the sporty grille and unique front air intakes, we can safely assume that what we're seeing is the Arteon R-Line. Of course the 'R' badge is a good indicator as well. Compared to the other trims, the R-Line version will be equipped with premium features including a leather clad sports steering wheel, Alcantara upholstered heated seats chrome-plated tailpipes and more.
Powering the Arteon R-Line is most likely a 2.0-litre TSI which VW will be offered in two states of tune; 187hp (190PS) and 276hp (280PS). But wouldn't it be great if a 2.0-liter turbo'd four-pot is hiding under that bonnet? Carscoops certainly thinks so, more specifically the on in VW's facelifted Golf R, which is cranking out 310PS (306hp) and 400Nm (295lb-ft) of torque with a 0 to 100km/h (62mph) time of just 4.6 seconds.
