The DeltaWing GT Offers Spectacular Fuel Economy

When you first cast a glance over at the DeltaWing GT, you might be forgiven for asking yourself why it looks as weird as it does. But this is a concept vehicle that's all about the performance and the handling, and not the superficial exterior stuff.

This vehicle's distinctive narrow front track and sharp front are designed to maximize aerodynamics, keep weight down and ultimately increase efficiency. Equipped with a 138-horsepower 1.4-liter four cylinder engine, this vehicle is estimated to offer 74 miles per gallon on the highway, which makes for pretty great fuel economy specs.

Ultimately, this concept is part of DeltaWing's effort to supply automotive architecture to car makers to help them meet fuel economy standards that are becoming tighter by the year. This means that car designs will be decided by manufacturers and won't necessarily stay true to this peculiar concept design.
