After what seems like forever of the to be or not to be confliction, Volkswagen has finally confirmed the production version of the BlueSport roadster unveiled at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show. Sales will begin in 2013 at a price of around $30k.

The future BlueSport will feature the same design language as the current Golf and Scirocco, translated into a sleek headlights, a narrow, horizontal grille and LED daytime running lamps. The interior will be similar to the one found on the Scirocco.

It will be a mid-engine sports car featuring a choice of: 178bhp 2.0-liter diesel, a turbo and supercharged 1.4 TFSI engine and a 2.0-liter turbo unit. The engines will be coupled to a standard six-speed manual gearbox or a dual-clutch DSG as an option. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is expected to be made in around 6 seconds. The 2013 Bluesport will come with an ultra-light aluminium chassis, plus a manually operated canvas folding roof.

There are also rumors about a hybrid version.

When it comes to styling i don’t think that this VW convertible would be available
with women. But i have seen most of women drove Eos or New Beetle.
