The Volkswagen XL1 is a fantastic small car developed for one purpose: to provide maximum fuel economy. It consumes only a liter of diesel per 100 km. As it weighs only 795 kg it is also very fun to drive as it is lively and direct. By cons, it is not designed to go on a track, as svelte or she.

A team of engineers decided to remedy this problem: to do this, they withdrew all hybrid and battery and small diesel twin. They then expanded the back of the fireball for more stability, graft have him more aerodynamic support, all new suspension and a DSG transmission. To power this vehicle it was, however, find a mill both compact and powerful. Good thing Ducati (part of the Volkswagen empire) currently manufacturing the most powerful twin-cylinder on the planet!

Once the engine of the Ducati 1199 Superleggera installed in the Volkswagen XL Sport, the performance is ensured if the 0-100 takes 5.7 seconds and top speed is 270 km / h. The small 1200cc engine can revolutionize up to 11 000 revolutions / minute, developping 197 horsepower.

The XL Sport will be limited to 500 copies. And just as the XL1, it is likely that Volkswagen does not sell on our continent … and that’s a shame!
