Jetcar 2.5

The premise behind the Jetcar Company is to build a fuel efficient car; the company first did this in 2001, with its archetypal concept. This though has been developed into the production version below in 2004, the 2.5 looks more like the Messerschmitt KR200 from the late 1950’s, even the concept behind it and the seating position are similar. Utilising an 800cc, 3 cylinder diesel engine with 41 bhp, it returns an amazing 111.9 mpg with a CO2 emission of just 66g/km, so all good there then and seems to do exactly what it set out to.
The only problem I can see is its price tag, 48,000 euros and it’s only got 2 seats!!!!!! However if you’ve got the money and grew up in the 80’s watching Top Gun then this may well be the car for you, you’ll just need to find a Goose to sit behind you and have “Danger Zone” rocking out through the stereo as you drive in your flight jacket.
