The new Volkswagen Concept BlueSport is the latest addition from the German manufacturer which offers maximum driving fun with minimal fuel consumption! Why we say minimal fuel consumption?
Because the new concept is powered by a clean diesel engine, with common rail injection and downstream NOx storage catalytic converter delivers dynamic performance, capable to deliver an impressive 180 hp (132 kW) (although it was not confirmed we are sure that this is a 2.0-liter TDI engine).
The engine is connected to a 6-speed DSG dual clutch transmission which transfers the power to the rear wheels. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is made in just 6.6 seconds while the top speed is limited to 226 km/h (147 mph).
Due to the fact that the vehicle integrates two technologies that are part of the so-called Eco mode, automatic start-stop system and energy regeneration (both of them deliver an additional fuel savings of up to 0.2 liter per 100 kilometers in city driving), the vehicle delivers an impressive fuel consumption of just 4.3 l/100 km or 54.7 mpg.
As you can see from the photos the Concept BlueSport was unveiled in a Flex Silver finish with an orange fabric convertible top while at the interior we find an easy to operate touchscreen and veather upholstered seats in lightweight construction with their single-piece seatbacks.
Volkswagen started off the year 2009 with a bang at the North American International Auto Show. The company unveiled the Concept BlueSport roadster vehicle during the renowned motoring show. The car’s promise: unparalleled driving experience for lesser fuel.
According to Prof. Martin Winterkorn, Volkswagen’s Board Chairman who attended the 2009 NAIAS, the BlueSport is an expression of the Volkswagen’s signature of fuel efficiency and driving dynamics. The Chairman also revealed that the roadster Concept BlueSport carries a 180 PS Clean Diesel engine under the hood.
