Whatever the future reserves for BlueSport, this 3.99 m long roadster uses a four-cylindre 2-litre 180 bhp TDI engine able to make it accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.6 s and to reach a top speed of 226 km/h. It is also 1.26 m tall, 1.75 m wide and has a wheelbase of 2.43 m. The engine is in a mid-rear position, just behind the two seats of the car. BlueSport is a rear-wheel drive car and its power is transmitted to the rear wheels though a six-speed DSG gearbox, or dual-clutch manual automated transmission, if you prefer.
Since the car is diesel powered, its fuel consumption is as low as 23.3 km/l. Volkswagen may not confirm its intention of bringing back the 914, but its press release states that BlueConcept represents the "comeback of the compact roadster". Enough said.
