Professor Gordon Murray, who is a famous Formula 1 race car designer, is spearheading a project to produce some dinky cars that weigh only about 1,250 pounds, seat three, and have a top speed of close to 100 miles per hour — all for $9,000 per car.
Not only is the car itself tiny, but it’s built in a very small factory, from recycled plastic bottles, glass fiber, and steel tubes — using only 20% the material needed for a “normal” car. As for its miles per gallon, let’s just say that it bucks this sad MPG-improvement trend and clocks in at a whopping 74 miles per gallon. Say whaaaaattt??!!!
All in all, it looks like a great, efficient car. Of course, it’s a bit “greener” to ride a bike instead, but if you’ve got to drive a car, then the T25 may just be for you.

Question: How could you be mad if you were pulled over by a cop car that looked like this? READ MORE »
Last weekend, I was coming out of Brew and View when I spied something out of the ordinary. Over a year ago, I had been amazed just to see one Smart Car in Raleigh. But this topped that easily…
It was two Smart Cars parked in one parking spot! Yes, I’m sure they planned it all out and thought they’d be all cool and mess, but forilla, it really was pretty neat to see two cars parked together like that.
Step right up, folks. We’ve already seen how to get a free tote bag. And also how to win a free Smart Fortwo. But what about a contest where you have a chance to win both?
Fret not, for Purex has THIS CRAZY CONTEST where you can win these very things. All you have to do is come up with a jawsome, eco-friendly tote bag design and submit it to their contest before May, 2009.
You can win cash-money, a free tote bag, or a Smart Fortwo. I’m ’bout to enter the contest myself; I strongly suggest you do the same.
The P50 has a single-cylinder 49cc engine and only three wheels… technically, it’s not even a car (they classified it as a motorcycle). Only about 100 were made, so if you get a chance to see one, you go and you take that chance.
To learn more about this awesome automotive oddity, please place your mouse cursor over THIS and mash the button.
Step right up and enter for the chance to win a de-luxe 2009 Smart Fortwo. These bad boys get 33 city/41 highway miles to the gallon — not too shab, although for how tiny they are, you’d think they’d get better gas mileage than that.
But anyhoo, click THIS HERE LINK for the chance to win your very own Smart Fortwo. Apparently, you can enter once per day, so that’s what I’ve been doing. The contest is only open until Halloween this year (dang, such a long time). Just imagine, not only will you be saving on gas (and cutting down air pollution) while you drive, you’ll be able to park in some tiny parking spaces. Can’t beat that with a stick.
