VW EcoRacer: Carbon-fibre sports-car prototype at the Tokyo Motor Show

VW EcoRacer
VW is presenting a new prototype at the Tokyo Motor Show, the VW EcoRacer.
At the Tokyo Motor Show Volkswagen are presenting a prototype that could well make history as the most economical sports car of its time. The two basic figures: 3.4 litres per 100 km average consumption, and 230 kph top speed. The name of the sports car: EcoRacer. Eco, because fuel consumption and emission are extremely low; Racer, because the dynamic potential of this centre-engined sports car is thoroughbred and fascinating.

Thanks to its carbon-fibre (CFP) bodywork, the EcoRacer weighs only 850 kilograms and accelerates to 100 kph in a mere 6.3 seconds, driven through the DSG double-clutch transmission. This sports car, powered by a newly developed 100-kW turbo-diesel engine of the next generation, thus presents a forward-looking synthesis of austere economy and impressive performance. 230 kph, 6.3 seconds, 3.4 litres – vital statistics that are as unusual as they are fascinating! When driven with economy in mind, the car can even travel more than 1000 kilometres on one tank filling (30 litres).
