    Just seen on pistonheads a report that say VW are going to make a Up! GT.

    http://www.pistonheads.com/news/default.asp?storyId=25042

    I wonder if there will be a Mii version? Mii FR or Mii Cupra?
    In the article it says it will have a 1.0 litre 3 cylinder turbo, with 110bhp.
    Surely if it would fit the 1.2tsi engine would be cheaper rather than having to develop another engine.

    The article also says 6 speed transmition, I hope they do a DSG version as I think it could be a replacment for my IbizaSC Sportrider in 3 years!

    I would hope around £15k

    Would be a little rocket with around 100hp and under 1000kg!

    I agree, the Citygo doesnt share the good looks the Up and Mii have. I cant tell which one out of the two i prefer though!

    I think if they're releasing the facelifted Ibiza with the FR being more of a trim level than a note of performance then I don't see why the Mii would be excluded.

    Maybe a new 1.0 TSi engine or try getting the current 1.2 TSi in there.

    Would be nice to see! Rapid little machines.
    As it stands currently I prefer the Mii to the other two. The Citygo is too boring and the front end of the Up! looks mangled in my opinion. Having said that, the Up! GT version does look nice.

    I think they would be a brilliant, could have a 1 make race or rally series!

    Little turbo engine, cheap running and insurance, but still with power to entertain!

    I thought that too, but I understand the 105ps 1.2 is a 4 cylinder engine, not 3 like the 1.2n/a units in the Ibiza/Fox/Polo etc etc, so I guess it won't readily fit in.

    Unless they are saving it for later...

    it should fit in. the lupo had a 4cyl engine line up to start with. even a gti model too and this will be the replacement.

    I'm pretty sure in one of the reports, VW have stated a GTI version of the UP!! is being explored with 125bhp from the 3 cylinder unit. It's meant to sound really good too [B)]

    Ford have just unveiled their 3 cylinder unit too in the Focus :wtf:

    If they charged £15k for something like this no-one would buy it. I'd hope the UP! gt is around £12k

    I think you may have hit on something here. Since the production Up GT hasn't been revealed yet, SEAT probably can't show anything more exciting than this concept styling piece.

    I'd be hugely surprised if once the final GT is announced, the other brands don't also get access to this higher-power TSI that's floating about.
