Video: VW's BlueSport Mid-Engined Roadster in Action

The Detroit Show saw the reveal of VW's BlueSport concept, a mid-engined roadster study said to preview of a production model that could be launched as early as 2012. The concept is powered by a 180HP 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel propelling VW's... "poor man's" Boxster from 0 to 60 mph (96mph) in 6.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 140 mph (226 km/h). And all this with a fuel economy rating of just 55 mpg U.S. (4,3 l/100 km).
