The Volkswagen XL Sport Concept is a Ducati 1199 Superleggera-powered sports car, based on the older XL1 concept.
There has never been a sports car like the XL Sport concept being showcased by Volkswagen in a world premiere at the Paris Motor Show. A car that uncompromisingly furthers the development of the lightweight sports car in its very essence. A 270 km/h driving machine based on the XL1, the most efficient car of all time. Efficiency and emotion compellingly recombined.
At the rear of the XL Sport sits one of the finest achievements in engine technology – the V2 adapted from the new Ducati 1199 Superleggera, the world's most powerful two-cylinder motorcycle. Like the XL1, of which only 250 units will be built, the Superleggera is also being manufactured in a limited edition (500 units), in a process that embraces hand fabrication and high-precision industrial manufacturing technologies alike.
The XL1 and the Superleggera, two icons of lightweight carbon and magnesium design technology, thus unite to create a unique sports car. With the XL Sport, the group brands Volkswagen and Ducati impressively demonstrate how high-tech developments can lead to synergies between brands and be used by both parties as modules for new concepts.
The Volkswagen XL Sport Concept appears as a low Class D car with the following rank statistics:
- Stock rank: 796 (20 BPs)
- 1* rank: 1,097
- 2* rank: 1466 (12 BPs)
- 3* rank: 1,814 (30 BPs)
While featuring decently good top speed, the XL Sport Concept has weak acceleration, below average drifting, and average nitro efficiency. It is considered the second worst car in the game, only sightly better than the Nissan 370Z NISMO.
