Topgear America’s project Sipster is coming along

old rabbit diesel

TopGear.com American is working on their “triple 7”  — $7000, 70mpg, 0-60mpg in under 7 seconds. They have purchase a VW Rabbit diesel in New York and are transplanting a TDI engine in  Regina, Saskatchewan and have labeled the project the “Sipster.”

The current video shows the engine transplant (below) although the  project was announcmed in February. As a  VW diesel fan I’m anxious to see if this old a 1981 Volkswagen Rabbit Diesel with a 2003 VW TDI engine will be able to succeed in their goal.
