Volkswagen is working on a third marketing coup. The first was the VW XL1 . The car is the culmination of all known fuel-saving technologies and comes as a small series on the market. The second blast was the purchase of Ducati . AMG had worked for years with the Italian motorcycle manufacturer together and suddenly heard of the Volkswagen Group . Coup number three is a combination of the first two are : Project XL Sportster . A sports car but based on the XL1 has a Ducati engine under the hood.

Mainly because the components for hybrid drives rausfleigen .

Core idea is to get an extreme athlete on the road, humiliates its competition in terms of fuel consumption outright . After corresponding body modifications , the project clearly Sports XL weighs less than 795 kg , Ferdinand Piech said during a lecture at the University of Vienna . What is mainly because that all parts fly out , which are needed for a hybrid drive .

Because the project XL Sportster has a Ducati engine under the hood. From the Panigale . Should read: 190 hp (at 10,750 rpm ) and 123 Newton-meters (at 9,000 rpm ) from 1,200 cubic centimeters. Negotiated the force from the double -clutch transmission from the company - complemented by an intermediate gear with reduction 2:1 . For the ancillaries such as air compressor and generator , the engine is further enhanced by a belt drive .

The model will be lighter than the XL1 ( 795 kg ) .

May be assumed also the project XL sport that it is a platform for research and development. A production version can not be expected in the coming years certainly . Since the development by the XL1 as a base but should already be relatively wide , first hard evidence will probably come soon . Consumption and driving values ​​, for example. Or the price of a model of small series .

Problem is fuel consumption. I putt around on mine being very easy on the gas, no more than 4000 rpm, and still only get 38 mpg. If you are on it the mpg goes to crap and this is with a lot less weight than the car is going to be. Cannot see it getting more than 25 to 30 mpg in a car at twice the weight.

Sportscar.

who is looking for 30 mpg?

if it is light, has good aerodynamics and the motor is tuned for low end torqye, i don't see a problem.

Or, you know, extrapolate what they have in the Panigale motor (massive over-bore) into a 90 degree V-6 2k lb car.

I'd buy one. 3.5 liter/500 hp 2000lb terror. With a redline up around 11k, who'd be able to keep that between the ditches?
