Volkswagen’s Concept Blue Sports made its debut at the 2009 Detroit Show as an inquiry in combining great fuel wealth with a sporty effort and looks. The roadster actions some four metres in extent but weighs less than 1200kg. VW has put a turbo diesel engine in it and that tips the performance scales even more in its favour.
The engine is a 2.0-litre TDI that makes 180hp (134kW) from 4,200rpm and stocky torque of 350Nm made from just 1,750rpm. Saying to be able of a 0 – 100km/h time of 6.6 seconds and a top rate of 226km/h (140mph), the Blue Sports concept emits just 113g/km in injurious C02 gasses. It averages 4.3 litres per 100km (55mpg US/ 66mpg UK) in fuel consumption.

Not to be classified as a lightweight with no suitable credentials, the car runs on enormous 235/35ZR19 tyres front and 245/35ZR19 rear. The gearbox is VW‘s trusted sudden-shifting DSG with 6 cheeky gears and one swap.
Technologies adopted are bi-xenon LED headlights unlikely, a touchscreen that joystick infotainment sources inside and a cool-to-use top that can be impassive in seconds.
