It could be yours but Volkswagen has not released any info on production numbers or cost, so keep saving those hard-earned pennies. With an average fuel consumption of 261 miles per gallon and a range of 50km on battery alone, ones savings in the end will be quiet handsome.

Roughly ten years ago, Volkswagen started on this journey to have a practical car with a fuel consumption of one liter per 100 km. At the 83rd Geneva Motor Show, the XL1 will become a reality. Underneath that space-age design is a very slippery, ultra-light daily driver. Drag is rated at 0.189 with curb weight hitting 795 kg or 1752 lbs. Whose pushing the boundaries?

For at least a decade now the “R” model identifier has referred to the most powerful Volkswagen cars in the compact class.

This sports car will be delivered to customers by spring 2013; and these early purchasers will be driving the most powerful and fastest Golf Cabriolet cars ever.

Volkswagen Beetle GSR hits the Chicago Auto Show

Volkswagen Beetle GSR hits Chicago Auto Show

Gallery after the jump

Volkswagen is on a little tear when it comes to dressing up the Beetle lately. Yesterday’s announcement of their new “As sun as possible” campaign focuses on the 50s, 60s and 70s special editions of the Beetle Cabriolet. Now we’ve got the limited edition Beetle GSR. Stemming from the Rally days of the 1970’s, the Beetle 1303 S emerged. The 1303 referenced the type and not engine displacement and was also known as the Super Beetle. The GSR stands for Gelb-Schwarzen Renner or Yellow-Black Racer. Back then “styling” was considered “tuning” hence the yellow and black livery and no real power advantages.

As it was then, the 2014 Beetle GSR gets a nice styling makeover and a bit more power at 210hp. 3500 we’re made between December 1972 and February of 1973. Todays Beetle GSR will also have 3500 on hand worldwide. About half should hit U.S shores at $26,500. Continue reading ‘Volkswagen Beetle GSR hits the Chicago Auto Show’
