The Xl1 Exklusive in "die Gläsernen Manufaktur"

the world premiere of the technology leader took place 8 months ago at the qatar motor show. the xl1 impressively demonstrated that it is possible to consume 0.9 litres over 100 kilometres.

Since only recently, the design model from clay has been on display as an exhibit in the "Die Gläserne Manufaktur". The exhibition piece, which is just under two tonnes, symbolises the broad range of Volkswagen's models: from the futuristic XL1 to the premium limousine in the top class of automobiles. Both vehicles offers an elegant design, the greatest precision and innovative technologies.

All the lines were uncompromisingly subject to the laws of aerodynamics. At the front, the XL1 is the widest, as the car becomes increasingly narrow toward the back. From above, the form of the XL1 resembles that of a dolphin. Particularly toward the rear, the lines follow the flow of air, thereby reducing the Volkswagen's resistence.

The model can be seen in the Volkswagen Lounge until the middle of November. The free exhibition is open from Monday to Saturday, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m..
