Sweet And Sporty Gas Saver?

Volkswagen EcoRacer

Volkswagen has jumped on the wagon of creating an environmentally safe vehicle like BMW, Honda, Toyota, etc. But this is not your regular eco-friendly vehicle you see onvweco.jpg the dealership lot or driving on the highway. This automobile is set up as a race car. VW named it the EcoRacer. It is powered by a 1.5 liter TDI power plant (directly injected turbo-diesel) and puts up around 136 horses. The average miles per gallon are around 69.2.

A carbon fiber body contributes to its 1874 lbs. The suspension mimics that of a Golf with a double wishbone front suspension. The disk brakes measure in at 11 inches and this gas saver rolls on 17 inch wheels rapped in 175/55 front and 225/45 rear rubber.
