VW Lupo GTI

The Volkswagen Lupo is a city car manufactured by Volkswagen. It was introduced in 1998 to fill a gap at the bottom of the VW model range caused by the increasing size and weight of the VW Polo. Rivals include the Ford Ka, the Opel Agila and the Fiat Panda. The Lupo was a badge-engineered version of the SEAT Arosa

The car is available with a variety of engine sizes and trim levels, from budget models through to the GTI variant. The 6-speed Lupo GTI has been labelled a true successor to the VW Golf Mk.1, the first true hot hatch.

Various special-edition and test models have set records in fuel economy. The lightweight nature of the car and advanced 3-cylinder diesel engine have resulted in a production model (the Lupo 3L) that can consume as little as 3 litres per 100 kilometres (78 miles per US gallon or 94 miles per Imperial gallon). It was rumoured that it was this model that encouraged Renault to produced the Clio V6, since they assumed 3L stood for a 3-litre engine.

Production of the Lupo ceased in 2005. It has already been replaced by the VW Fox.
