At 660-pounds, this VW concept car “managed to achieve a miserly 282 miles per gallon in testing” — powered by a 1-cylinder engine. Click here for first picture in gallery.

While the engine is likely to be replaced by a twin-cylinder turbodiesel with hybrid drive, the carbon fiber construction and canopy-style roof are likely headed for production.
