China’s new little car aka “The Highway Suppository”.
This is not a joke and they do sell for $600.00. They won’t be able to make them fast enough–good just to run around town.
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….
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 its first appearance.
The car was introduced at the VW stockholders meeting as the most economical car in the world. The initial objective of the prototype was to prove that 1 liter of fuel could deliver 100 kilos of travel.
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 that is 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.
Cute. At least it affords some protection vs a motorbike and is even more competitive in terms of cost.
