You’re looking at the Volkswagen XL Sport, an awesome combination of a crazy Volkswagen engineering and Ducati power.

Based on the XL 1, the German automakers exclusive hyper-miling vehicle, the XL Sport uses much of the same light weight technology, allowing for a car that weighs under 2,000 lbs. But instead of a dull powertrain focused on getting high MPGs, this car uses a two-cylinder engine from Ducati, that puts out around 200 hp, allowing this car to hit 60 mph in just 5.7 seconds
