Volkswagen XL Sport To Get Ducati Power


A Ducati-powered XL1 was unveiled by Volkswagen Group Chairman Ferdinand Piech during a lecture at the University of Vienna. The model, which is dubbed the ‘XL Sport’, stands out due to an aggressive body kit that consists of a front splitter, a ventilated hood and extended fenders. It also has a set of unique alloy wheels and motorsport-inspired graphics.


Very few details have been released of the model. Piech said that it will be equipped by a Ducati’s Panigale 1200cc engine that delivers 190bhp and 123Nm of torque. There is no information yet about its performance but it’s reported that it is lighter than 795 kg due to its lightweight parts and the fact that it doesn’t have a plug-in hybrid system. There were speculations that a petrol-powered XL1 may soon enter production, but the XL Sport seems to be a concept or research vehicle that could spawn a new generation of VW’s.
