VW Bluesport άλλο ένα Concept?

Recommended Posts

The Boxster has got a fight on its hands! Ahead of its debut in Detroit this week, these are the first official images of VWΆs baby sports car designed to offer a cut-price alternative to PorscheΆs finest - and a more upmarket option to the MX-5.

Called the Concept BlueSport, itΆs the car that proves sportiness can go hand-in-hand with economy - combining the agility and pace of a mid-engined roadster, with the fuel-consumption and affordability of a more family-orientated model.

Performance fans wonΆt be left wanting with a 0-60mph time of 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 140mph, while running costs should be uncharacteristically low thanks to a combined fuel economy of 42mpg and supermini CO2 emissions of just 113g/km.

At the heart of the BlueSport are two efficiency-boosting technologies, an automatic stop-start function, similar to the system appearing across the BlueMotion range later this year and regenerative braking, like the KERS technology set to be employed by 2009 F1 cars.

Following in the footsteps of the Audi TT TDI, the worldΆs first diesel sports car, the BlueSport uses an oil-burner under the bonnet. ItΆs the familiar 2.0-litre turbocharged unit, producing 178bhp and 350Nm of torque mated to the six-speed version of VWΆs slick-shifting DSG ΅box. And with all that torque being channelled through the rear wheels, genuine sports car thrills are guaranteed.

Tipping the scales at a slimline 1,200kg, the BlueSport has been subject to a number of weight-saving measures. Most significant is the manually operated fabric roof, doing away with the need for heavy motors and hydraulics.

Compact dimensions mean itΆs shorter, lower but almost as wide as a MKVI Golf, creating a squat, muscular stance, and aiding stability in the bends. Despite short overhangs and a rear-mounted engine dictated by its all-new platform, VW insists the two storage areas, one at the front and one in the back, are roomy enough for a pair of weekend bags.

If the face seems familiar, thatΆs because it continues the design language first implemented on the new Scirocco, MKVI Golf and UP! concept. The sleek headlights, narrow radiator grille and prominent badge are unmistakably VW.

At the rear, the LED taillights are sculpted to mimic the headlights, giving the car a front-rear symmetry much like the Boxster. A third brake light is integrated into the boot lid, just above the badge, while the blacked-out diffuser with the twin tailpipes located at itΆs outer-edges help to emphasise the carΆs width.

But itΆs in profile that the car really makes its presence felt. Cavernous side vents give away the carΆs mid-engine layout, while exaggerated wheel-arches filled with ten-spoke 19-inch alloys, bulge out of the bodywork.

Inside the high-quality cabin an enormous touchscreen interface takes pride of place. ThereΆs also lightweight sports seats clad in VWΆs trademark ribbed leather, with integrated roll-hoops behind the headrests and heating controls that glow blue or red depending on the desired temperature.

VW hasnΆt confirmed the roadster will make into production yet, but judging by the production-ready appearance, as well as the growing interest in small fuel-efficient sports cars, and itΆs not a question of if, but when its available to buy. Expect both TSI and TDI versions to be offered when it makes it to showrooms in 2010, with prices starting from around £22,500.

θα ήθελα πολύ να το δω με τον 2.0λιτρο με τα 200... αφου με τον 1.4 178 PS έχει 6.2 sec τα 0-100 τότε με τον 2.0λιτρο θα σπέρνει... δεν θέλω να σκέπτομαι το τι θα έκανε εάν φόραγε το μοτέρ του μελλοντικού Scirocco R αυτό του ΤΤS & S3 μανούλαμ... αλλά θα το βάλλουν στην παραγωγή???????

H Volkswagen αποκάλυψε στη διεθνή έκθεση αυτοκινήτων στο Ντιτρόιτ, το «Concept BlueSport», το οποίο αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει στους δρόμους το 2010.

Το νέο σπορ γερμανικό μοντέλο, όπως διακρίνετε και από τις φωτογραφίες, είναι ένα roadster το οποίο θα ανταγωνίζεται την Porsche Boxster, σύμφωνα με τα λεγόμενα της εταιρείας. Εμας βέβαια μας φέρνει περισσότερο κάτι σαν πισωκίνητο Audi TT, αλλά και για λόγους μάρκετινγκ η VW "βλέπει" στο εμπορικό της στόχαστρο την Porsche...

Ο κινητήρας, ο οποίος θα βρίσκεται τοποθετημένος στο κέντρο του αμαξώματος, είναι 2λιτρος diesel με 178 PS και 35,7 kgm μέγιστης ροπής. Η κίνηση θα μεταδίδεται φυσικά στον πίσω άξονα, μέσω ενός 6τάχυτου κιβωτίου DSG.

Το μικρό βάρος του αυτοκινήτου (1.200 kg) υπόσχεται (μεταξύ άλλων) δυναμική οδική συμπεριφορά και άριστο χειρισμό στη γρήγορη οδήγηση, κατά την VW.

Η οροφή του είναι υφασμάτινη και όχι ηλεκτρική, για να κρατηθεί χαμηλά το κέντρο βάρος και οι ζάντες αλουμινίου 19 ιντσών. Οι πληροφορίες αναφέρουν πως θα υπάρξει και πιο καυτή έκδοση του «BlueSport» (επίσης το 2010) με 2λιτρο βενζινοκινητήρα TSI και μηχανικό κιβώτιο ταχυτήτων.

Expecting to glean anything meaningful from driving a one-off concept car is usually no more sensible than trying to have a conversation with a shop window dummy. The stylised, too-perfect-by-half appearance isnΆt fooling anyone and the limited range of movement, while fine for striking a pose, is pretty hopeless when it comes to conveying the nuances of body language, never mind even the most rudimentary raised eyebrow. I remember sampling the Merc SLR concept in Lanzarote back in 2000. The thing felt so inert it might as well have been made from the same stuff as the surrounding lava slopes, and it delivered a driving experience about as far removed from the eventual production carΆs as the top speed of a Smart is from the sound barrier. If you want a powerful example of a pointless exercise, drive a concept car.

But not, maybe, the VW BlueSport. This is the car that stole the show at Detroit in January as a static exhibit. Built on an all-new mid-engined platform, itΆs a subtle stunner in the grand tradition of tempting concepts: chunkily handsome, cute but steely, brimming with funky details, designed to stoke the fires of desire. And while its future in the real world has yet to be given the green light ? though itΆs hard to see how a Lotus Elise S-priced turbodiesel mid-engined roadster with Porsche Boxster-aping design values can be denied ? this one and only BlueSport looks good to go. So good, in fact, that itΆs here, parked in a siding halfway up an insanely twisty mountain pass in the Bavarian Alps near the Austrian border. Not the usual lap of the car park, then.

The timing carries a certain back-to-the-future intrigue, too, given the current power struggle between VW and Porsche that now looks likely to end in a merger giving VW overall control. From a historical perspective BlueSport would be the spiritual successor to the 914, the classic mid-engined roadster developed by Volkswagen in the late 1960s but only ever sold as a Porsche. That isnΆt on the cards this time, though.

At the moment, and with due emphasis given to its name (in VW-speak ΅blueΆ equals ΅greenΆ), the BlueSport runs VWΆs familiar 2-litre four-cylinder common-rail turbodiesel ? with the boost tweaked to give 178 rather than the usual 168bhp, and supported by 258lb ft from 1750rpm ? driving the rear wheels via a six-speed double-clutch DSG transmission. With a projected 6.6sec 0-62mph time and 140mph top speed but almost 50mpg and 113g/km CO2 emissions, its ΅green sports carΆ credentials are impressive. But the 261bhp turbocharged 2-litre four-cylinder direct-injection petrol engine from the recently announced Scirocco R apparently slots just as snugly behind the seats and, with a resulting power/weight ratio of around 220bhp/ton, would make a true, cold-eyed Boxster rival.

In the interests of cost savings and keeping the notional entry-level price pegged to around £25,000, but also a factor in how quickly the BlueSport could be put into production, the chassis hardware represents something of a pre-emptive raid on the future VW parts bin, teaming the front MacPherson strut set-up from the yet-to-be-seen fifth-generation Polo with the rear multi-link arrangement from upcoming ΅4MotionΆ four-wheel-drive versions of the mk6 Golf. Also borrowed from the Polo is the electro-mechanical steering while the brakes are lifted from the Golf R32. The low stance is accentuated by the way the extremely pretty 19in alloys ? shod with 235/35 (front) and 245/35 (rear) Pirelli P Zero Nero tyres ? sit deep in the broad swell of the wheelarches.

All right, one small drawback. This being the only BlueSport in existence and therefore worth comfortably in excess of 1 million euros, itΆs electronically limited to 62mph. The wisdom of this isnΆt slow to sink in. The BlueSport looks so right and feels so well sorted within a few hundred metres of rolling down the road, the invitation to explore the limits of its chassis with all the firepower it can muster couldnΆt be much bigger if it was written in the sky with red smoke. Once youΆve started it, that is. This is more concept-y. No key, just a large starter button in the centre of the Jaguar XF-like rotary transmission selector ? in this case a knurled plastic bezel with the usual PRND detents. Jab it once and the electricals go through their checks while the speedo and rev counter needles perform full arc run-throughs. Then hold the button down for two seconds and the engine starts. Not the most inspiring of sounds, and no-oneΆs going to mistake it for a quad-cam V6, but itΆs quiet enough.

Great seats, terrific driving position, fine visibility, clear instruments, chunky controls, even a Sport button for a livelier interaction between engine and transmission. It isnΆt fibbing, either ? the BlueSport sprints forward with torquey slugs of not-too-rattly acceleration and runs into its speed ceiling with disappointing alacrity. It must be as light as VW claims.

Sixty-two is just fast enough to put some heat on the chassis along this kite ribbon of a road, though, and here the news is better still. I can only assume that chassis tuning hasnΆt begun in earnest yet but, to be honest, if I were in charge of the project, IΆd be scratching my head. The BlueSportΆs steering might not be the last word in tactility and detail feedback but itΆs beautifully direct and sets up a feeling of precision, agility and neutrality that underpins the carΆs dynamic demeanour.

Like all the best mid-engined cars, it has a lightness of touch that allows it to flow over varying road surfaces and camber changes with the minimum of disturbance. DonΆt expect much in the way of any time/anywhere MX-5- style tail sliding, though ? at least not with the oil burner in situ. The BlueSport has far too much mechanical grip for that, in the dry anyway. Which isnΆt to say itΆs no fun. Rather like the Boxster, it majors on speed and finesse. And those R32 stoppers hardly break sweat.

An all too brief drive in what could be a very exciting addition to the roadster ranks ends with a quick demonstration of the single-layer hood. ThatΆs quick, too: manual maybe, but the work of seconds from folded to taut and trim. Like everything else about the BlueSport, it works. IΆm sure VW knows what to do next.

Πληροφορίες που ήδη έχουν αρχίσει να βλέπουν το φως της δημοσιότητας αναφέρουν πως η VW έδωσε τελικά το πράσινο φως προκειμένου να ξεκινήσει η εξέλιξη του νέου της roadster και το έως τώρα πρωτότυπο BlueSport να πάρει το δρόμο για τη γραμμή παραγωγής.

Δημοσιεύματα στο βρετανικό ηλεκτρονικό τύπο επισημαίνουν πως το project «νέο Roadster με τον κινητήρα τοποθετημένο στο κέντρο» πήρε την τελική έγκριση των ιθυνόντων της γερμανικής εταιρείας και οσονούπω τα πρώτα πρωτότυπα μοντέλα θα ξεκινήσουν να εξελίσσονται σε πραγματικές συνθήκες, προτού το νέο ανοιχτό 2θεσιο της VW φιλοξενηθεί στις εκθέσεις της τελευταίας, στα τέλη του 2012. Σχεδιαστικά, σύμφωνα με τις ίδιες πάντα πηγές, οι διαφορές σε σχέση με το πρωτότυπο BlueSport Roadster, που είδαμε το 2009 στο Ντιτρόιτ, θα είναι περιορισμένες, με τα φώτα τεχνολογίας LED και τη στενόμακρη μάσκα (στα πρότυπα του κουπέ Scirocco) να δίνουν βροντερό παρόν. Οι διαστάσεις του αυτοκινήτου (σ.σ.: η επίσημη ονομασία του δεν έχει ακόμα αποφασιστεί) αναμένονται να είναι ιδιαίτερα… συμπαγείς, με το μήκος και το ύψος ασφαλώς να είναι μικρότερα από τα αντίστοιχα του Golf και το συνολικό βάρος να περιορίζεται περί τα 1.200 κιλά. Στο εσωτερικό, παρά τις σπορτίφ πινελιές με τις οποίες θα είναι διανθισμένο το σύνολο της καμπίνας, η εικόνα θα παραπέμπει άμεσα σε εκείνη του μικρο-μεσαίου σπορ κουπέ της εταιρείας.

Στα μηχανικά μέρη, το μεγαλύτερο ενδιαφέρον συγκεντρώνει η επιλογή της VW να τοποθετήσει τα εκάστοτε κινητήρια στο κέντρο του αμαξώματος, πολλά μέρη του οποίου θα είναι κατασκευασμένα από αλουμίνιο. Την κίνηση –προφανώς στους πίσω τροχούς- θα παρέχουν, εκτός από το 2λιτρο ντίζελ της μάρκας, οι γνωστοί 1.4 TFSi και 2.0 TFSi των Polo GTi και Golf GTi αντίστοιχα. Στη μετάδοση, οι επιλογές θα αφορούν τόσο το χειροκίνητο 6τάχυτο κιβώτιο της VW, όσο και το γνωστό πλέον DSG των 6 ή 7 σχέσεων. Πότε αναμένεται να δούμε το νέο roadster της VW στις κατά τόπους εκθέσεις της; Σίγουρα, όχι νωρίτερα από τα τέλη του 2012. _Χ.Α.
