The Volkswagen XL1 is certainly one of the most fascinating laboratories cars of the time. The two-seater, seen for the first time in Qatar two years ago, is born to be frugal. Under its futuristic getup sculpted by the wind, the Volkswagen XL1 embeds a hybrid diesel mechanics. Announced consumption: 0.9 litres / 100 km in the European cycle.
A powerful argument therefore for a car that will go into production – very limited 250 copies – to the end of 2013. History would however not stop there according to the monthly Automobile. Volkswagen could resume its frame to develop a sports car light and very sober.
Based on information given by a member of the Board of Directors of the group, argues that this model would be almost wispy, barely 690 kg. The Golf GTi’s latest generation engine would be used in the exercise, a combination that would allow this sport to blow into the neck of the Porsche 911 in pure acceleration. More small Mills three-cylinder supercharged by compressors would be also considered.
Fuel consumption could be around 3.3 litres / 100 km because of its weight and low coefficient of drag. Its saliva already!
