VW Bluesport need Audi and SEAT to put it on production

Post by Rabbit106 on Fri Jan 23, 2009 8:50 pm



Volkswagen's Concept Bluesport, one of the stars of the Detroit auto show, is a Mazda MX-5 rival based on a new group platform.
At the moment there's about a 70 percent chance of the mid-engine
rear wheel drive roadster making it into production, according to VW.
The decision will depend on whether SEAT and Audi can also develop
their own versions to give VW Group the right economies of scale.
There is no fancy technology - the 1200 kilo (2645 lbs) roadster has
a steel body and uses existing Group components with the front
suspension, for example, from the new Golf. Everything about the car is
production ready.
The engine for the Detroit show car is a 2.0 TDi with 180PS mated to
a 6-speed DSG dual clutch transmission; CO2 emissions are just 113g/km
with 0-62mph acceleration in just 6.6 seconds and a top speed of
142mph. It has an automatic start-stop system.
A 1.4 TSI version is in the pipeline for the Geneva motor show in
March and if reaction here in Detroit and again in Geneva is positive,
then the chance of the car being built will increase considerably.
