German car companies are upping their game against the Japanese in producing ultra efficient cars. VW are showing a new car at the Qatar motor show which has a 2 cylinder diesel engine and an electric motor. t will do 313 MPG, 0-60 in 11.9 seconds and even doesn't look too bad. Shame about the name though - the XL1 :rolleyes:

Dunno if they're going to build it though...

Barman, I'll have a pint of whatever he's been drinking :nah:

That car is without a doubt :censored: ugly.

Why is it whenever a car maker builds a car that is supposed to be futeristic they dig out a copy of Space 1999 on betamax just to revise what it's supposed to look like?

Still, at 313mpg, I'd have one :D

Sorry, but that car looks horrible!

They forgot to draw the rear wheels on! What's wrong with a car having four wheels, for christ's sake!
It looks like it could be mounted on casters at the rear... :unsure:

Too weird to be good looking or ugly - I think I'll stick to an overheated Corrado... the rear end has definitely melted, and somehow it makes me think of spandex - I think I'm going to have to get some help...

I'll bet it would be fun to change a wheel though!
