The Volkswagen XL Sport Concept features the world’s most powerful two-cylinder engine – a V2 from a Ducati – resulting in a top speed of almost 170mph.

At the rear of the lightweight XL Sport sits the V2 engine adapted from the new Ducati 1199 Superleggera, the world’s most powerful two-cylinder motorcycle. Like the XL1, of which only 250 units will be built, the Superleggera is also being manufactured in a limited edition (500 units).
