Wow, that thing weighs the same as my GT, and it's not a whole lot wider, either.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I like the carbon fiber skin, very sexy. Wired is one of my morning reads just about everyday. http://www.wired.com/

Some of the most asinine things people do are typically preceded by the two words "Watch this."

Re: 235 Mpg??

It's interesting to me that VW announced this car 6 years ago, and who knows how long it was in design. Pretty amazing!

I drove a friend's SMART car for a day, reminded me of a go kart I once owned... But it was pretty cool and fun to drive. Even has paddle shifters.

If you aren't good for anything else, you can always serve as a bad example.

That's because there isn't enough room to lift your leg to operate a clutch.
