Regular Car Reviews does the VW XL1!



I love seeing different takes on this car. I see something new every time, like the CF fan housing.


Would sooooo love to drive one!

Now we just have to wait for the VW internals to fall apart in a few years so we can buy a chassis and swap in a reliable Honda or Toyota drivetrain.

Bookmarked to watch later.

Just watched it. Most of their car reviews are somewhat annoying; I found this one to be especially so. Why call it a review when all you do is bash any car below 200hp?

Agreed. Most gearheads are only concerned with horsepower.

I used to be like that, even though I grew up mostly around econoboxes that would be considered underpowered in the U.S. and Canada.
