That’s 1L as in 1L/100km milage. That’s 235 mpg. And it’s not a concept car anymore. It’s going into production, if on a small scale. The cost of carbon fibre has been the barrier to the car – first unvieled 6 years ago.

It’s a 2 seater with a single gull-wing door. Video cameras instead of mirrors.
