Volkswagen will launch a hot hatch version of its Up city auto, the company has confirmed. A mere five years (ahem) after the Up's launch, there's a fast one finally on the way.
For example, it's only now that its flagship GTI version is reaching dealership in Great Britain, and for that matter we're more interested in the fact that United Kingdom customers can also park in their driveway the top of the range Performance variant. Due to reach showrooms early next year, here is hoping that the Up can transcend some of the magic of the mk1 Golf GTI. Anxious that's not enough?
Trump niega presiones para evitar investigación sobre su exasesor de seguridad
Pero las reacciones en el Congreso han sido a favor del nombramiento de Mueller, muy bien considerado por los legisladores. Trump terminó despidiendo al exdirector alegando mala gestión.
That means an 8.8sec 0-62mph time and a 122mph top speed.
It's that power figure which leads Volkswagen to say that the Up GTI "follows the genetic heritage" of the Mk1 Golf GTI - with just 5bhp difference between the two cars, performance figures are very close-run. Despite the performance, the vehicle is said to have low fuel consumption and emissions, thanks to automatic engine stop/start, regenerative braking and one of Volkswagen's first uses of a particulate filter on a petrol engine. You'll actually be able to wring this thing's neck.
India confirm Champions Trophy participation

Former asst. special counsel: Don't expect public updates
Trump promised he would announce his pick for FBI director "very soon", and said he aimed to restore the reputation of the bureau. "He learned of the president's decision to fire him and then he wrote his memo with his rationale", Durbin said .
Unless VW's had a serious off day, this promises to be a thoroughly good vehicle. Whether it's a true great will all hinge on its price; if VW can make it £15,000 or below, then this could be a proper bargain hero in the Suzuki Swift Sport and (previous gen) Renault Sport Twingo mould. Reckon it's a victor?
