Cute and it will fit in your garage but where do you put the golf clubs?
This is not a joke and they do sell for $600.00. They won't be able to make them fast enough - be good just to run around town.

Here's a car that will get you back and forth to work on the cheap.......

$600 for the car.

258 miles per gallon...

Only a one-seater, however

Talk about cheap transportation ........

Volkswagen's $600 car gets 258 mpg -- It looks like Ford, Chrysler and GM missed the boat again!

China launches $600 car that will get 258 mpg

This $600 car is no toy and is ready to be released in China next year.

The single seater aero-car totes VW (Volkswagen) branding.

Volkswagen did a lot of very highly protected testing of this car in Germany, but it was not announced until now where the car would make its first appearance.

The initial objective of the prototype was to prove that 1 liter of fuel could deliver 100 kilos of travel.

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.

The Most Economical Car in the World will be on sale next year:

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

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
