Bullet Car: Volkswagen introduces the L1 concept car

The Frankfurt Motor Show will play host to the latest round of concept car teasers this season and the latest stunner is the Volkswagen L1. Somehow this amazing concept vehicle simultaneously screams muscle car "and" protective family car cocoon.

Shaped like a bullet, and shown off in what appears to be gun-metal silver, the L1's body is composed of lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum which allows it to achieve an amazing 189 miles per gallon. Outfitted with a diesel-electric hybrid engine, and capable of a top speed of 99 miles per hour, the company hopes to get the car into the hands of the public within three years.
