There is another site about this car that took it for a test drive and got 94mpg in their test. As i see it the one big setback it the car only weights around 700lbs! Thats like driving around in a beer can. Anyways the top speed is 106mph. 0 to 60 is like 14 sec.
I think it would sell like hotcakes if they got it on the market. Maybe GM should build their own.
Gives all new meaning to when someone tells you to "Go fly a kite!"
With the cross section of that car @60mph, the first 20mph gust of wind would turn you into a Sh!7 sandwich and they'd be scraping you up with spatulas until next Easter. That'd be a city street driver only, I'd imagine. Which still leaves the problem of interstate travel to worry about, unless of course they make mass transit nation wide.
You wouldn't catch me in one of those cars for safety reasons.
Well I guess you'd know better than me... I've never been a fan of them. My information comes from a friend from school who's a Honda tech at a dealer. He's got an '06 si, and I think he's burned the stats into my head like a soldering iron onto Spam. He says Honda claims 0-60 in 6.7 seconds.
I'm not trying to put the cars down, Lord knows I've had slower cars. That Malibu when I first got it would do 0-60 in a weekend. Quarter mile time: eventually.
its not the faster car i have owned....I still have my 06 wrx sti and i also had a 96 cam. that was built. I ll have a turbo on it by the end of the month. I got the si b/c of gas mileage and decent performance.
