Video: Fifth Gear drives the BlueSport Concept
In their latest Web-TV episode, Fifth Gear’s Vicky Henderson has a go in the coolest Volkswagen concept ever: the diesel burning Concept BlueSport that was revealed earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show and harks at a return of the lightweight Porsche 914 with its mid engine and open top configuration.
The Concept BlueSport is powered by a 177 HP 2.0 Liter Clean Diesel TDI power plant mounted behind the driver and fed by a high pressure common rail injection system. Volkswagen says that the fun to drive roadster will be able to go from 0 to 60 MPH in around 6.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 140 MPH.
As a bonus, the Fifth Gear squad also talks a little bit about the new Ferrari 458 Italia, the all new Jaguar XJ, the Porsche Panamera Turbo becomes the fastest four door around the Nurburgring and then head out to a proper Pagent of Power.
