100mpg city for a couple grand!

Wow, if I had the cash I'd be all over this. It's so tiny it must get 70+mpg in normal city driving... not sure if it would make it on the highway, but for all the low speed drivers out there, it's nearly perfect.


edit- fixed linky

that's the best part! low weight, o.k. reference area, and small engine means fewer pumping losses, and less energy needed gotta luv microcars!

Looks like a Reliant Robin, but it isn't.

A Hayabusa motorcycle engine in that thing would be disgusting. Imagine someone in their shiny new Dodge Viper getting their *** spanked by something like that.

Adds to the appeal immensely. Right now it looks like it's all show no go.

Just like these things...

the roads are scattered with 'em after they try to go past 50mph, it's like 700lbs of metal and plastic that just goes flying for no apparent reason! a 100hp engine and the right wheels/gearing is all that's needed to turn that into one quick car.

Sell a kidney , you have one spare and for sure it must get you more than a couple of grand for it.
