Volkswagen has released a short teaser video for its upcoming Up! city car - with an emphasis on 'tease'.
With a focus on the emotional aspect of the diminutive city car's marketing, the clip offers little more than hip urbanites enjoying a spot of slow-motion jumping. If that's your thing, check out the video below.
As for the car itself, reports in recent weeks have pointed to a solo debut in Paris later this month, and a Frankfurt Motor Show debut in September is also on the schedule.
Technical details for the Up! have yet to be revealed, but one look at the little hatch shows that it will compete in Europe with the likes of Toyota's tiny iQ.
Volkswagen Australia is also understood to be considering a local debut for the Up! in the next two years. Keep an eye on our Frankfurt coverage for more details.
Ken Block: Gymkhana 4
Cult rally hero and DC Shoes founder Ken Block is back on the scene this week with a short teaser for his upcoming Gymkhana 4 video.
You won't see a lot in this clip, but what you'll hear is Block's 'Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle' Fiesta rally car previewing the anti-lag system of its 447kW turbocharged 2.0 litre engine.
Don't be fooled by the 'Hybrid' part of its name - that refers to the car's ability to be quickly adjusted for use in stage rallies, rallycross and Block's Gymkhana exploits.
Watch for the full video to debut early next week.
