"To make a strong business case for the new roadster, we need to share the investment with at least three brands," said a senior VW Group executive. Last week another VW executive, Ulrich Hackenburg, had discussed the possibility of the car's heading to production as well.

Getting Audi and Porsche on board may not be difficult; Audi reportedly already has its own version of the vehicle designed, and rumors of Porsche looking for a new 914 variant - which was itself a VW-Porsche joint project - have been brewing for some time. Both companies have room in their lineups, in terms of both price and models, for an affordable, sporty and luxurious roadster.

According to project manager Thomas Ingenlath, this was to create an appearance of the Concept Blue Sports similar to a powerful athlete. Strong, smooth and quick - but without any need to see aggressive out to demonstrate their strength. Design of course, is always a matter of taste, but have VW managed to achieve its goal?

Okay, you want a green but still have serious fun behind the wheel. Right few alternatives on the market, right? But Volkswagen's latest concept car shows that there is light in the tunnel. How about mid-mounted engine, roadster body, lightweight chassis, 180 hp turbomotor, 0-100 km / h in 6.6 seconds and a top speed of 226 km / h? All this in a car that does not draw more than 4.3 l/100 km and emits low 113 g / km of carbon dioxide under the ECE norm - that is an environment class car!

The Volkswagen BlueSport concept has a wheelbase of just 2.43m, sits 1.26m tall and has an overall length of about 4m. In front, the sports car exhibits a track of 1.49m and in the rear it is 1.52m. This dimensions makes the Volkswagen Bluesport as long as Polo.

The transmission on the Volkswagen Bluesport Concept, is, of course, VW's new proven DSG with dual-clutch gearbox mounted closer to the front of the car and resulting in a 45:55 front-to-rear weight distribution. The six gears can operate in automatic mode or manually selected via paddles on the steering wheel. DSG transmision also helps the driver to achieve very good consumption figures. The fuel tank holds 50 liters and run against ECE standard enough fuel 115 mil between the tank top. Speaking of the practical benefits of Concept BlueSport two luggage space, the rear can hold 70 liters and the larger the volume is 112 liters.
