Volkswagen Auto 2000 (1981)

The Volkswagen designers equipped the Golf platform with a lightweight body, bringing the experimental vehicle down to 750 kilos. Powered by a 3 cylinder diesel engine, the Auto 2000 could reach 95 miles per hour, but at a more sedentary pace could achieve 60 miles per gallon. A more practical spin on Volkswagens long time advocacy of frugal diesel engines that survives unto this day.
