Volkswagen has debuted its Up! Lite concept car at the 2009 LA Auto Show. It looks very cool, metallic and looks to sport quite abit of tech on the inside too. With four seats, the Up!

An electric car known as the T.27 created by the McLaren F1 supercar road car designer Gordon Murray has been unveiled. Three prototypes of the T.27 model will be developed over the next 16 months.
The manufacturing process as well as the performance of the car will be aimed at being environment friendly.
