Volkswagen presented this concept vehicle called the Volkswagen GX3 at the Los Angeles Motor Show. It was developed by the Moonraker Team and VWs Design Center in California. The result is something that looks like a cross between a car and a motorcycle.
The Volkswagen GX3 goes from 0-100kmh in 5.7 seconds and has a mileage of 5.2 litres per 100km. Very good, and up to the standards of all of Volkswagen’s previous concepts like the EcoRacer which all seem to put focus on environment friendliness as well as performance.
How does this cross between a car and a motorcycle move? The GX3 is powered by a 1.6 litre 4-cylinder engine making 125hp at 6000rpm and 152Nm of torque at 3000rpm, which is more than enough for the 570kg vehicle.
Power is transmitted to the single rear wheel through a chain drive. Gearbox is a 6-speed manual.
