Wolfsburg engineers are also pondering over a turbo and supercharged setup or even a hybrid one, but a mid-mounted GTI’s engine is more likely, our source claims. While it may sound unbelievable at this point, the XR1 could reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.6 seconds, a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) and return over 70 mpg.
Even though it sound like a heck of a sportscar, the XR1 hasn’t been green-lighted by the German company at the time of writing. And given that the Volkswagen Bluesport sank before being released, we need to be a bit cautious about this one.
We might add it’s kind of silly to cancel the stunning Bluesport and consider a vehicle like the XR1.
