Has anyone seen this?

Single Seater Aero Car
VWa.jpg


Spartan interior doesn't sacrifice safety

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 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.

Do you push a button to fold it up into a briefcase when you get home to your wife Jane, son Elroy, daughter Judy, Rosie the Robot, and Astro the dog?:grin:

Once the feds get done adding all the "required" crap to it, it would only get 72.8 MPG because it would now way three times as much (and cost as stated above)....... :shock::lol::lol::lol::-(

I can't tell from the pics. Does it have a door or do you just put your feet down and lift it over your head?
Since it's from Hamburg, I suppose if you get in an accident, there'd be hamburger all over the place.

Hoax

This was built several years ago as an experiment in high mileage cars. The pictures are real, but the story is pure fantasy. Seriously, $600 you're not even trying.
