The 235 mile per gallon car?

This is so cool – a VW that got about 235 miles on one gallon of diesel fuel.  Check it out!

I love how th author sums it up:  "Do you want one? You bet you do. The XL1 is a new breed of supercar, one that is every bit as extravagant, technical, beautiful and exotic as a Lamborghini or a Ferrari, but that points to a new kind of world where we understand that natural resources are finite and precious, and maybe a new style of driving where we try to conserve them."
