Do you know why the Lupo didn't go over very well? I'll bet the little turbo Diesel has a cult following there like the Metro does in the US and Canada. From what little I've read, I'd buy one in a minute... which might also be the 0-60 time
All Lupos were very expensive compared to their rivals because they were made in Germany. The famous Lupo 3L which everyone around here drools over made up less than 10% of production because it cost an extra $3000 over the regular model in 1999 dollars. Out of 35 lupos on, just 3 are the 3L model.
The Lupo was replaced with the cheaper, larger, heavier Brazilian build Fox in 2005.
