258 MPG Single Seater VW

$600 VW Single Seater

This is not a concept car.  This 258 MPG (some say 282 MPG) single seater VW will be on sale starting next year for only $600!  That is the good news, the bad news is that is only going to be selling in Shanghai for the time being.

The new one seater Volkswagen will have a 1.7 gallon gas tank, a cruising speed of 74.6mph, and a range of 404 miles per tank.  I want one, but not sure why this car isn't shipping worldwide, I imagine it has to do with safety standards.  I imagine a crash in this would be scary, as it appears to be made of very lightweight materials like an airplane.  I still want one!  More pictures after the break.

    I wished the monotracer was cheaper and used a smaller engine. It does meet safety requirements in the US.
