For summer 2014 Lupo will get a 1.9 tdi with about 350 hp and target is to beat some standing mile records, I am hoping lupo will reach 300 km/h club. I am not doing the modifications I just gave the car for good purpose. I hoping speed freaks will start to think aeromodding serious option for more speed after next summer .
