Volkswagen XL Sport Brings Ducati Power to Paris
One of the biggest displays at 2014 Paris Motor show is the Volkswagen XL sport concept. The car consists of an engine donated by the wild Ducati 1199 Superleggera motorcycle and based on the limited edition, fuel sipping XL 1, The XL Sport is a combination of lightweight technology, extreme aerodynamic focus and high performance.
While previous news focused on the performance aspects of the XL sport, including the 197- horsepower V- twin , seven speed dual- clutch transmission and slippery 0.258 drag coefficient, we will now focus on the car looks this time, which in today’s prospect are amazing.
The XL sport retained the two of the XL1’s most important features: a wide, low shape, and a kammback rear end. For performance issues, Volkswagen sacrificed the smooth body of the XL1 in order to fit large cooling ducts behind the rear doors, to better the passage of air into the Ducati engine.
The front end is more aggressive, with a prominent chin spoiler, while a significantly larger and a wider wheel/tire package which delivers additional grip and aesthetic appeal at the expense of aero efficiency. The doors character line looks more unique, which is likely to better feed air into the side- mounted intakes while a more substantial rear-end pinned at the XL Sports 168 mile per hour speed. Our team on the ground in Paris, meanwhile, reports that this concept matte point is a particular highlight of the low-slung VeeDub. We can’t say much, but we are sure it’s a Sepang Blue, a matte shade found on the Audi R8.
Inside the cabin a set of aluminium-alloy shift paddles have spawned from the back of the flat bottomed steering wheel, while anodized accent , red contrast stitching and a digital instrument cluster round out the most significant interior upgrades.
It also looks fantastic, finishes in a satin coat paint and with interlinked panels out back like the spine of a batsuit. Top speed is claimed to be 270 km/hour, zero to 100 km/h comes in under six seconds, and a low center of gravity and widened track should give a thrilling handling.
You’d have expected that VW Group CEO Martin Winterkorn to have waxed enthuthiatic on the car he stood in front of, especially it was revealed that the XL sport is the 200,000,000 vehicle that is produced by Volkswagen.
However, Winterkorn speech was yet another yet another hybrid, confirming his company’s dedication to hitting fuel economy and emission targets, while also warning against continuing to tighten restriction without knowing if the strategy is working.http://www.aartiinformatics.com/auto/cars/volkswagen-xl-sport-brings-ducati-power-to-paris/http://www.aartiinformatics.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/paris-auto-show.jpghttp://www.aartiinformatics.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/paris-auto-show-300x300.jpgCARSINTERNATIONALauto news,auto reviews,auto show,auto shows,automotive news,autonews,car news,new car,new car reviews,paris auto show,paris auto show 2014One of the biggest displays at 2014 Paris Motor show is the Volkswagen XL sport concept.
