From YES! Press: The YES! Roadster is a manifestation of the creed of two company founders and current managing directors Herbert Funke and Philipp Will: Reduce to the core. And for the two designers this means that the direct car-road communication must not be interfered by unnecessary gadgets. Hence, what the owner of a YES! will purchase is nothing more and nothing less than a driving machine. Translated into plain figures this means: Like the original YES! Clubsport model the new YES! Roadster possesses a performance-enhanced 1.8 liter 210 KW (286 hp) Volkswagen turbo engine with a maximum torque of 330 NM. These characteristics place the car in the top performance range.
