Audi A2 1.2

These cars are impressive. Maybe a little bit fancy compared to a civic, but the efficiency is amazing. It has a Cd of .25, has the belly pan, has 145 tires, and is made of aluminum (expensive) to save weight. but it gets around 100 MPG. Some people say it is not hard to get 110. Why don't they sell it here...it runs as clean as a TDi.
sorry this may not be a real link (I am not good w/computers), but you can copy and paste:

I really wish that it would be brought to Amerika. I could do some sick things with that if it already gets 100 mpg.

What's really great is that it is such a vindication of (European fuel blend) Diesel. I'm not a diesel fan per se, but since we're (currently, yes?) the biggest frakking car market on the planet, we ought to have the choice.

One HAS to ask why VW and Audi won't bring their three liter cars to the US........................It's a conspiracy, I tell you.

Nahh , Conspiracy means -¨A joining or acting together, as if by sinister design¨

A conspiracy sounds like back room deals , but its just normal governmental policy.

NEENER, NEENER, NEENER to all Hybrid fans......... Heres' a car that doesn't use batteries or electric motors or regeneration, and still beats the Prius and Insight by 20 - 30 mpg. Simpler is better: Low mass, aerodynamic body and a low HP engine is all that it takes to get spectacular mileage.

2 notes: the Audi's MPG figures are imperial gallons (careful making comparisons); also the car was discontinued.
