Volkswagen Launches $600 Single Seater Car

Someone just forwarded me the pictures of this Volkswagen single seater diesel concept car that is set to be released onto the Shanghai's market in 2010.

It looks cool for a single seater car but I can't believe its price, RMB 4,000 (US$600) only!

- It will cruise at 100-120 Km/Hr with an unbelievable 0.99litre/100Km (258 miles/gallon).
- Better than Electric Car - 258 miles/gallon: IPO 2010 in Shanghai. This will beat all the low fuel consumption cars in the world.
- From conception to production: 3 years and the company is headquartered in Hamburg , Germany.
- Gas tank capacity = 1.7 gallons
- Speed = 62 - 74.6 Miles/hour
- Fuel efficiency = 258 miles/gallon
- Travel distance with a full tank = 404 miles

I don't mind to fly to Shanghai just to buy this cool single seater car and ship it back. It's still very cheap after adding the shipping cost.
