Volkswagen’s BlueSport concept – the production version – is set to be released in the early months of 2014. The model will reportedly be built on the new MMB platform, which uses several Golf suspension components to keep expenses down.
This platform will also be seen on the Audi R4 and the Porsche 356/914 Revival. No details were given about the engine – but it would be safe to assume that a four-cylinder power plant would be placed under the hood – like a turbocharged 1.6-liter with 220 hp (164 kW / 223 PS).
Six-speed manual and seven-speed DSG transmission choices are likely to be offered. There is also some speculation about the car making an appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2013.
