Recently, leading auto maker Volkswagen confirmed that the Up! GT has been given a green light for production. Industry sources reveal that the car will have a fairly ambitious performance package. The car is expected to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in fairly quick 8.5 seconds.
The fact that the car tips the scale at a very light 960 kgs and has a 1.0 R3 TSI engine that pumps out 110 hp of power further consolidates the info on acceleration figures.The car should have a top whack of 195 km / h.
It may be noted that VW recently came out with images of the 5 door version of the hatchback and the car should be soon launched in India. We surely would like to see a performance oriented compact on our roads.The Up! GT should be present at the Geneva Motor Show in March and expect us to update you with more information on the car as soon as any figures come from the German car maker. Stay tuned folks!
