VW answer to 4C - 850kg carbon ...

The XR1 concept, not yet signed off, but widely advertised as a spoiler to sales of the 4C.

Not sure they understand what the word "style" means...

Its also a fair way from production. The 4C will probably be finished by the time that comes out.

Nice retouch of the XL1 show car from Geneva. I sat in that and was impressed.

Personally I don't like it as it is, however, looking what they did with the R8 they could pull out something beautiful

Uncovering the rear wheels certainly helps with the stance .

There was one at Goodwood next to a hybrid Evora, with the wheels covered. The rear looked a lot narrower, nothing at all like a sports car.

Neither do their customers, I predict they'll sell like hotcakes if they release it.

So then thats the way to build it ;-)

1. Take a Golf and hammer it => Scirocco
2. Take the Scirocco and sit on it => XR1

The funna part is that if they actually produce this they will sell it it a hundret times more then the 4c just because it has the boring badge on it.
