Volkswagen recently revealed the production version of its dimunitive Up! ahead of its Frankfurt Motor Show reveal, and the Internet is already buzzing with probable varieties of the stylish subcompact. PS-Garage.com designer Seljakboy (A.K.A. Ivan Martinović) turned in his own interpretation of a hotted-up version, the Up! GTI.

First impressions? We like what we're looking at, and we hope Volkswagen takes a peek as well. The wheels, black and red trim and center-mounted exhaust outlets in the back all give the standard Up! a visual punch that would look perfect on a sporty version. Check it out for yourself in the gallery.

      I like it.... a lot, but would probably go for the 500 Abarth instead, assuming the estimated $20,000 price is accurate.

      Instead of the pair of regular squirrels of the regular Up!, will have a pair of genetically modified squirrels that rolls faster the pair of squirrel-wheels that powers the car's wheels, and like the regular Up! will run on hazelnuts but will need a good deal more quantity since the super-squirrels will eat more hazelnuts per minut.

      I'd buy one if they made a special 'Yours' edition.

      Like the five bolt wheels. Rear glass could be expensive to replace in a light rear-ender.

      VW will never build it. If they build it, it won't come to the States. If it comes to the States, it'll be so detuned and heavy, the media will shred it. If people buy it anyways, they'll warp the brake rotors because Americans are just too damn heavy, leading to a massive online campaign to get them recalled and replaced under warranty, leading to a disastrous loss for VW. Repeat step 1.

      VW is still not bringing in the Polo which which would be a strong B segment competitor so what makes anyone think north america is getting this in any version? The 1.4t with 122hp would be perfect in this car with the 72hp 1.0 for the regular version and alot better looking than the clown cars from Fiat and Smart. 5 speed and CVT for the regular model and the GTI should be a 6 speed only..DSG too expensive and over kill for this car.

        Twingo RS and Abarth 500 are using +130hp engines so I think VW can do more. Though question is: has this car been designed to get that engine ? they may not go for it if there are too many modifications.

        There's where fresh air comes to the pair of squirrels. Squirrels need to breathe , you know. Also they will evade thru there if they see they were rolling too fast and police is coming.
