You might feel pretty smug when you can mange to put hypermiling to good use and get over 50 MPG in your hybrid, but this team of mechanical engineering students from the University of Colorado has done far better. They designed a vehicle for the Shell Eco-Marathon held annually in Texas and their car has gotten 1,767 miles per gallon! See the car in action and hear from the students who helped design it as they explain how they made such incredible fuel efficiency possible.
Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over.
