Volkswagen BlueSport Concept - new image gallery


If there was ever a story of a sports car with an uncertain future, the Volkswagen Blue Sport Roadster is it. Ever since the creation of the concept
, there has been speculations as to whether Porsche will make another 914 or what would and Audi version look like. Even Volkswagen has put the eco friendly sports car on the back burner due to the unstable economic climate and deficiency of new car buyers.

Anyhow, until the German automaker makes up their minds, they will continue to tease us with a few more images of the Blue Sport. The alternatively fueled vehicle is powered by a 2.0 Liter Clean Diesel (TDI) engine with common rail injection making 177 HP mounted in the midship position. Volkswagen claims that the roadster will go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 6.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 140 MPH, all while returning a very hybrid-like 55 MPG.

For me this teasing is taking too long. But I think they are waiting for the right timing. I was ust remimded that this Concept BlueSport follows the previous roadster concept car, the Volkswagen Concept R, shown at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Put the 2.0T and 2.0TDI in it, magnetic ride, and price it at the entry price of the S2000 - this would fill that small, light, fun, attractive two door sports car niche nicely. Come to think of it, it’s the perfect time for VW to release a car like this. But of course, its up to the VW conglomerates to feel the rush.

The story of the WV Bluesport is like a long unfolding novel— an anthology that develops its lines in the process of long teasing, appealing to the market for more attention before it finaly comes into the culmination of producing the real thing. I hope it doesn’t take too long.

With its 6.6 sec 0-60 and 140 MPH, it’s making enough torque that you’ll be pretty happy with performance
you can always chip the car and probably pull another 30-60 tq and that’ll really blow your hair back. I’m excited for this little drop top. Hope it makes reaches the US shores.
