The new Volkswagen GX3 concept, which was designed in California, achieves a 10hp/lb power to weight ratio by attaching a 125 hp 113 ft-lbs and a 1.6 liter engine along with 1200 pound frame. The super-sleek 3-wheeled vehicle was designed for two and takes 5.7 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph. It has a top speed of 125 mph.
I like the chic, sort of mini Batmobile look of this vehicle.
Implications - The Volswagen GX3 boasts a 47mpg; but what I think is most appealing about this aesthetic and functional automobile is its very affordable price tag. It is certainly a winner.
