    Arrow VW Diesel sports car 69mpg

    Thought this might be of interest to some people I liked it myself 69 mpg 0-62 mph in 6.3 sec. and a top speed of 143 mph. they call it the Ecoracer not a supercar by any means but impresive for sure. The motor is a 1.5L TDI **Turbo Direct Injection** and comes with VW's DSG **Direct Shift Gearbox** with paddle shift

    Here is the full article if you want to see more Volkswagen EcoRacer

    Amazing little car.

    Looks funky (it looks like a baby TVR), goes like stink (145 Mph)...and it can average nearly 70 Mpg.

    HA! Try to do that in your sh!tty Prius!

    def feeling the TVR the prius is so over rated they have a concept for one that gets 234mpg and no thats not a typo its called the VW 1 Liter but dosnt seem to be so useable looks like a **************** bobsled. but for that kind of Mpg it might be ok lol this one looks good though i think

    I've seen this car a couple of times at it looks better each time. God I love this car, too bad VW said this was never going to make it to production...

    yeah makes too much sense to make it quick good mpg nice style, this car would sell like crazy and turn the whole hybrid sales upside down

    The front-end looks like a$$, but I'd drive one. Is that an auto shifter I see? WTF! IT should have a stick.

    It's a sequential gearbox.

    has 2 clutches and shifts faster than a human can great technology you can try it out in any of the new Audi or VW's good stuff and cool points for having padles and still being a manual
