Volkswagen Futura

Volkswagen Futura -

The Volkswagen Futura was a concept compact van built in 1989.

The Futura was fitted with  gull wing doors opening up giving way to both rows of seats. It was an all wheel drive vehicle. The 82 hp engine, had a mechanic supercharger and an original evaporation cooling system. This is not a lot of power for modern engines but the Futura weighed only 1000 kg. The evaporation cooling system made it unnecessary for the car to have a pump and ventilator. It also featured a new electronic system of reducing noise inside the vehicle consisting of several loud speakers that cancelled out the engine noise.
