High-performance Lupo launched

Volkswagen has boosted its Lupo range with the introduction of a high performance GTI. The new car is powered by a 1.6-litre 16-valve 125bhp engine, enabling a 0-62mph sprint in just over eight seconds and a top speed of 127mph.

Bonnet, doors and wheel arches are made of lightweight aluminium. The engine features variable valve timing and maximum torque of 112lb ft at 3,000rpm. The Lupo GTI features all-round disc brakes (ventilated at the front), and ABS with electronic brake force distribution, flared wheel arches, sideskirts, spoilers, a mesh grille and 15in alloy wheels. Prices will be released close to its UK launch at the end of this year.
