Volkswagen Ecoracer (2005)
The prototype consumes a mere 3.4 liters and has a maximum speed of 230 km/h. The Volkswagen EcoRacer is a Coupe, Roadster and Speedster all at the same time. At the Tokyo Motor Show (October 22nd – November 6th), Volkswagen presents an incredibly economic sports car. The EcoRacer’s average fuel consumption is as low as 3.4 liters and it reaches a maximum speed of 230 km/h.
Thanks to its carbon fiber body, the middle motor sports car weighs a mere 850 kilograms and accelerates in only 6.3 seconds to 100 km/h. This sports car is powered by a 100 kW turbo diesel of the next generation and stands for a trend setting synthesis of rock-solid economy and an abundance of sportiness. 230 km/h, 6.3 seconds, 3.4 liter – a data combination that is as rare as it is fascinating.
The body design with its new sports car front configuration, LED head and rear lights-system, solid proportions and strong lines, demonstrates that even very economical cars can be a fascinating drive.
Another world premiere at the Volkswagen booth: the new Polo GTI is being introduced. With 110 kW / 150 hp it is the strongest Polo since the series was introduced thirty years ago. The exterior and interior concept of this powerful compact intentionally shows similarities to the legendary Golf GTI. Starting in spring 2006, the Polo GTI will be available in select markets. Price in Germany: 18,950 Euro.
