VW Eco-Racer.

The Volkswagen Eco-Racer. Why oh why, if car manufacturers can seemingly churn out these 100 mpg sports cars with top speeds of 230km/hr at the drop of a motor show, do we not see more 100mpg + vehicles on our road right now? You have to start suspecting hidden agendas, don’t you?

 This sports car is powered by a 100 k/w turbo diesel engine of the next generation and stands for a trend setting synthesis of rock-solid economy and an abundance of sportiness. The EcoRacer as a coupé: The bonnet, boot-lid and doors are made of CFP (Carbon-fibre plastic), as are the roof elements. The door locks of the EcoRacer open using electromechanical technology that not only release the door catch – via Keyless-Entry-and-Go system – but also swing the associated roof wings upwards on a gas-pressure damper optimising entry to and exit from the vehicle.
