Wow!!!

Here’s a  car that will get you back and forth to work on  the cheap…….

$600 for  the car.

258 miles  per gallon…

Only a one  seater however

Talk about  cheap transportation  …….

Volkswagen’s $600 car  gets 258 mpg — It looks like Ford, Chrysler and  GM missed the boat  again!

China launches $600 car that  will get 258mpg

This $600 car is no  toy and is ready to be released in China next  year.

The single seater aero car  totes VW (Volkswagen)  branding.

Volkswagen did a lot of  very highly protected testing of this car in  Germany, but it was not announced until  now where the car would make it’s first  appearance.

The car was introduced  at the VW stockholders meeting as the most  economical car in the world is  presented.

The initial objective  of the prototype was to prove that 1 liter of  fuel could deliver 100 kilos of travel.
Spartan interior doesn’t  sacrifice safety

The aero design  proved essential to getting the desired  result.  The body is 3.47 meters long and  just 1.25 meters wide, and a little over a meter  high. The prototype was made  completely of carbon fiber and is not painted to  save weight.

The power plant is a  one cylinder diesel positioned ahead of the rear  axle and combined with an automatic  shift controlled by a knob in the  interior.

Safety was not  compromised as the impact and roll-over  protection is comparable to the GT racing  cars.
