European Shell Eco-Marathon contestant hits 6785 mpg

The vehicles in this year's European Shell Eco-Marathon are not exactly the cars you'd want to go on a road trip in, but they can go amazing distances on very little fuel. Engineering students from the Lucee La Joliverie School in France entered this year's top mileage-getter. Their ethanol-powered sleek racer was able to go the equivalent of 6785 miles per gallon.

Even with almost seven thousand miles per gallon, this year's top contestant didn't come close to beating the all-time Shell Eco-Marathon record of 10,705 miles per gallon. It's quite an impressive collection of vehicles that CNET has photos of, and if you go click through the images, keep an eye out for the condom car.
