The most Economic Car in the world (MT)]

This is not a toy, not a concept car. It is a newly developed single passenger
automobile, in highly aerodynamic tear-shaped, road-proven, real automobile. It is ready
to be launched as a single-seater, for sale in Shanghai in 2010, for a
mere RMB 4,000 !

Better than Electric Car - 258 miles/gallon: IPO 2010 in Shanghai

This is a single seated car
From conception to production: 3 years, and the company is headquartered
in Hamburg, Germany.
It will be selling for 4000 Yuan, equivalent to US $600.

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 San Francisco to Los Angeles

Gee.....I wonder how the oil companies will keep this out of the U.S. ? :wink:

I can't help wondering if the licence plate is a comment on its handling! :mrgreen:

It does indeed look like a modern take on the Messerschmitt 3-wheeler of the 1950's ;

Bit before my time so I never had a crack at one,but they were allegedly quite fast and a hoot to drive.

I had a mate who owned a messerschmidt when I was a student - it was quite quick by the standards of such things ( about 65mph flat out ) and the direct steering made it feel about like a go-kart to drive, very quick and responsive. He did the old ACU National Rally in it, 600 miles in 24 hours, ha ha.

come to that, I had a car called a Barclay or Berkely about the same time, students drive anything which is cheap and there were quite a few assorted bubblecars around in the early 70s, lke the BSAs and Matchlesses you found propping up garden fences wherever you looked. It had a British Anzani or Villiers 2-stroke engine and looked generally like a three-quarter-size copy of a frog-eye Sprite. The windscreen was so low you looked over it ( I always wore goggles ) and the soft-top was about the same visibility as a 2-slot letter box, not that I ever put the top up on mine because it was so tatty :D
