VolksWagon 74 mpg Golf BlueMotion Concept!

For those of you Volkswagon-lovers or Golf-lovers (the car I mean), you are in luck as VW is working on a 105 horsepower, 184 lbs.-ft. of torque at a low 2,000 rpm diesel engine that could change the way you pump gas forever.

Check out the details of this bad-ass little ride with electric power. I am going to see if I can get one for a monthly contest here… (or maybe 2, one for me too!)

Anyways, these are tight ass little rides you can commute to work without having a big bulky bike or car to park at an overpriced parking lot.

If you want one of these for free, leave a COMMENT! (Will they send us 2 of these? One for me and one for one of our readers?)  (thank
