  • Why does he point at everything like he’s showing a disabled child?

  • What a complete waste of 150 000$.... You have to be an idiot to buy this

  • The arrogant knickers congruently frame because mouse jekely dance unlike a first muscle. false familiar famous, powerful yacht

  • The Chevy Corvair at 4:23 looks unsafe at any speed with that low tire... And its for sale.

  • 0:38 thats a modified car- he is breaking his own rules

  • Whoa how does this guy afford so many cars? I make good money as a medical director right now but even I can't afford the stuff I see on his channel

  • It doesn't look like something from star wars. That's for sure.

  • This is why l dig Doug

  • Thanks Ferdinand piech 🙏

  • Ohh this is a Renault clio RS in the intro?

  • I'm convinced now that Doug would have called his car auction website Quirks and Features, but nobody would know what the hell that is.

  • In 62 years, driving 20,000 miles a year, the car will pay for itself!

  • Doug, I think your math is off. I don't think 260 mpg with a 2.4 gallon tank is 250 miles. Something just tells me.

  • Looks like something Citroen would try... This car really needs a modern update, power windows, rear camera and monitor, bigger mirror-screens with a broader field cameras, and definitely no diesel. Diesel is gonna be phased out, petrol/GPL with assisted electric would be nice.

  • Well we made a 1 Liter / 100 km car. But let's forget about that and wait for hilariously bad electric cars

  • We need a review of the truck/ship behind you, Doug.

  • That moment when the most expensive VW has the infotainment of the least expensive VW, the VW UP! In addition to the UP (and its Seat/Skoda siblings) this Garmin unit was also used for the Seat Ibiza 6J2.

  • Doug What about the Tesla Model S plaid ?🤞🤞🙏🙏🙏

    • it looks weird to see that back wheels are covered, its like almost futuristic but look at front they not xD

  • That's the daily-driver McLaren F1

  • looks SO good, i would love to own that

  • lol love the allroad shirt. I've got one myself (the shirt and the C5)

  • This video seems like from this era.

  • Looks like citroen cx whit that back design and break light

  • Looks like citroen cx with that back lights and overall back design.

  • Thumbs up to remember Ferdinand Piëch, the "father" of the XL1 and former Mr. Volkswagen

  • Dude, check your math... 0.9L/100km = 235mpg (not 260, but close enough). Now, if you have a car doing a claimed 260 miles per gallon and stick a claimed 2.5 gallon tank (in reality 2.4) to it, what's the total range again? Right, "250 miles"... Says so without triggering any internal BS alarms, hm...

  • This car's shape looks awfully like a silverfish

  • I think the passenger seat is fixed due to the screens that display the blind spots? It seems like it would be weird to make it to where the passenger could very easily cover up one of those displays haha.

  • Spending that much money to save a few thousand dollars on fuel? We're not all that rich Dougy

  • Do the Volvo s60 polaster!!

  • Fun car? I can only afford one car.

  • $150000 car with crank windows. Lmao.

  • it looks weird to see that back wheels are covered, its like almost futuristic but look at front they not xD

  • Doug is the type of guy who films the entire clip with The vw badge upsidedown on the wheel

  • Mike Tyson couldn't get thru 'em Doug's hands!

  • 2:40 Car gets 260mpg. Has a 2½ gal. tank and gets 250 miles of range?!?

  • These camera mirror setup was meant for the Tesla model S too. Not sure why that feature didn’t make it past the prototype fase.

  • I love how the car shakes while he emotes

  • People who don’t breathe, eminem, logic, daddy doug

  • Cheat software included? Btw.: This guy could sell me a Tin Lizzy as "The Future"

  • Renault Talisman &Co day light style ...verryy original,vw ::)))

  • Development for this must have been so expensive they've probably lost a ton of money for every car sold even at that price. It's a shame they've wasted that cool tech and ideas that could have become a much cheaper everyday car with incredible mileage. A cool ultra-Prius from VW could have started a planet-saving trend before Tesla made it cool, maybe. Too bad those idiots chose to cheat emission tests and destroy the brand's reputation.

  • Just like 2 seconds to wipe the dirt off your knee my man.

  • I would LS swap it

  • It looks nice. I like it. Give me one, Santa.

  • I'll have what Dougs having.

  • Thiiiiiss!

  • I’m in absolute love with this car man

  • vw should of made the bluesport even if it only few hundred limited production it would be nice to see doug test drive one

  • Haven't seen a Doug video in about a year. When did he get so hyper?

  • Seems like the fuel tank size, mpg, and range are not consistent...

  • Doug, clean your big shoes before you get in...

  • I never seen or even heard of it - and I live in Germany. But with this kind of price its not surprising. Also because VW built a super economic car already 20 years ago: the 3litre Polo. That was a proper VW Polo with a small engine, that would use around 3 litres (Diesel I think) for 100km. So not far off the figures of this 100,000 Euro car, for perhaps a fifth of the price. But strangely enough the 3l Polo production was stopped after a few years.

  • One problem. If a typical American car were to hit it, you'd be wheeled away in an ambulance.

  • The passenger seat could be placed astern of the driver's seat's so that the passenger side rear view screen is not obscured by the passenger's knees...?

  • Very very cheap plastics!

  • Would love to see all-EV with that shape -- similar to the EV-1/Impact. They could free up a lot of room and improve performance over that Olde tech version.

  • Reminds me of demolition man. Must of been really cool driving this.

  • it looks like the i, robot car............

  • 0,9l/100km, 9 liters tank, math says it would make 1000km on a tank, and yet, it has less than 500km of range... VW was already lying on its fuel consumption !

  • Good news: does 260 miles/gallon Bad news: it costs 150 000 dollars.

  • Thats better fuel economy than scooter. That weights 60kg

  • I want one! Never heard of this car before today.

  • Still looks better than the Tesla Cybertruck. Fight me.

  • The side mirrors could be one of the reason why the passenger seat is offset.

  • I have an '01 VW cabrio. CLOSE ENOUGH!!!!

  • There’s a hidden Diesel engine under the tires.

  • To hear dougs true voice you have to listen to the video at x0.75 speed. You're welcome.

  • I adore this car and I always thought it was hilarious that the infotainment was the exact same one that came with my VW UP! (A very small citycar hatchback). All the options were the same, instant MPG, ThinkBlue trainer, extra gauges if you wanted them like RPM or coolant temperature. The only difference I can see is the Artwork of the vehicle & the hybrid system screen. A little trivia is that you can unmount the Garmin screen and take it with you just like a radio facia from back in the day. Also, it has the most horrendous touchscreen for entering information imaginable, the thing should come with a stylus and I'm not even joking.

  • I know in every super mini sized super car Doug is uncomfortable because he tall look

  • Wish AMERICA had these

  • You cant see whats behind you wow welcome to the world of a truck driver.

  • The scary william subcellularly rescue because creditor luckily miss amongst a optimal friday. tenuous, animated flight

  • Here in India, we have Maruti Suzuki XL6 Mild Hybrid 🤣🤣

  • It isn't a supercar.

  • Interior is garbage

  • Robert Q. Riley’s company XR3 is closest thing in the states I know you can get to the WV XL1. I would like to see a review on one of those someday.

  • 260 mpg, two gallon tank only gets 250 miles???? If it gets 260 miles per gallon, shouldn’t that two gallon tank get you about 520 miles???

  • it goes 260 miles in one gallon, but has 2 gallons. how does it only go 250 with 2 gallons if it goes 260 in one?

    • It has a hybrid drivetrain, advertised fuel efficiency was achieved with fully charged battery during the 80 km / 50 mile test cycle. Range is advertised as 550 km / 340 miles.

  • This looks like a bar of soap. Pass.

  • I've always loved the design of this car. It's been years since I've seen one (on photo or video) but I still love it. Especially the back. Every line on this car is where it is supposed to be, and even the don't of the logo is beautiful.

  • This car is obviously a novelty because who would actually buy one

  • Doug… where’s the Autozam? 😯

  • The car is interesting, as others said, it would be nice to have as a full electric vehicle. But Doug, please, ask Google Translate to pronounce Volkswagen with German settings :D (hint: it starts with an "f" sound instead of "v", the rest is good)

  • I think today my son become the youngest person to watch your channel with interest at 2.5 months of age :)

  • okay okay, first off speed tail windows

  • Your hand movements are a big distraction! My opinion

  • Dear god its fugly...

  • 0.9 L / 100 km ... 9 L fuel tank ... 402 km range ... something is wrong about this math ! ;-)

  • "Ere condition" lol

  • 90s scifi told me we should all be driving cars that look like this by now.

  • VW is a scam

  • I think that just keeping the engine and making the car non hybrid would still be good and much more reliable

  • I guess the move from diesel to electric was hastened by Volkswagen and others lying and getting caught about their diesel emmissions. Just a guess.........................................

    • i hate the look of it, but the way it works is so very cool, so i love it.

  • [fɔlksˈvaːɡn]

  • Buy a Prius.

  • Looks like Doug's host is really trying to sell that old green car...

  • Hmm... a lot of cabron fibre, you can not see anything in the back, middle engine, 2 seater.... its an VW XL1 Lamborghini edition.
