Exclamation The 600$ car...from China/Germany...

This is what i got in my email today:
Quote:
I WANT ONE OF THESE.........

The Chinese Car is coming soon!
This will beat all the low fuel consumption cars in the world!

NEW CAR- FOR $600------- New Single Seat VW

New ride:
If you could go to Shanghai for a vacation, buy two or more of these cars, one for your wife and one for yourself, and one for each of your kids, have them shipped to Canada and still spend less money than if you bought a car in Canada. Getting the car(s) into USA , still an ordeal.
This is not a toy, not a concept car. It is a newly developed single seat car in highly aerodynamic tear-shape road-proven real car. It is ready to be launched as a single-seater for sale in Shanghai in 2010 for a mere RMB 4,000 (US$600)! Interested? Wait till you learn that it will cruise at 100-120 Km/Hr with an unbelievable 0.99litre/100Km (258 miles/gallon)! Impressed? Totally, after you have read all the details below about the hi-tech and space-age material input into this car! The Most Economic Car in the World will be on sale next year


Better than Electric Car - 258 miles/gallon: IPO 2010 in Shanghai This is a single seated car From conception to production: 3 years and the company is headquartered in Hamburg , Germany . Will be selling for 4000 yuan, equivalent to US$600.. Gas tank capacity = 1.7 gallons Speed = 62 - 74.6 Miles/hour Fuel efficiency = 258 miles/gallon Travel distance with a full tank = 404 miles

The future's so bright I gotta wear shades. I want one! A 1.7 gallon gas tank though. 4 or 5 wouldn't have killed them.

Yeah it has the Yaris range but if you were calling the shots on this little bugger wouldn't you give your ad guys one more thing to brag about.

OVER 1000 MILES ON A SINGLE TANK OF GAS!!!!
4 gal tank lol

Personally I don't care what it looks like. I could go visit friends that are about 600 miles away for less than $15 round trip at current prices. A visit to my old stomping grounds would cost about $8. I hope it happens.

I bet they gave an address to send money too..... The rims and tires would cost that much, you can't get a riding mower for that price for that price. Cool little concept car though..

I'll believe it when I see it. I don't see how that could possibly end up to market for $600.00.

Something tells me the reason it is for sale in China and not the USA is that it has absolutely no chance of passing any of the US safety tests. Pich has wanted this car for a long time. Now he finally has it.

It would never "pass" here because we all know auto manufacturers want to set a rape-price tag on it's vehicles. $600 is much to cheap to make a dollar off of people (even though they could make a killing by selling quantity)

pass it off as a motorcycle with four wheels, then the safety (or lack therof) isn't so bad.

shipping the car from China to the US alone would cost $600. then you have the sales guys commission $250. + , oh and the sales tax ,state tax's, and god knows what else.
Price tag is looking more like $3k , but i suppose $600.00 buy's a lot of rice
But what the hell i would buy one ,and as for the crash rating ,you only live once ,
so enjoy while you can .
