Edison2's Very Light Car – Click above for high-res image gallery

We first saw the Very Light Car from Edison2 in January in the basement at the Detroit Auto Show, but a lot more people might soon see this funky-looking car in magazines and on TV if the current results of the Automotive X-Prize's Knockout Stage hold. With little fanfare (so far, anyway), all of the vehicles in the mainstream class at the X-Prize have dropped out except for two entrants from Edison2. Vehicles Number 97 and 98 (pictured) still have a shot at winning this thing, according to the X-Prize's website. Everyone else has gone home.

Now, this doesn't mean that one of the VLCs is going to be crowned the champion, because the cars still need to pass the Final and Validation Stages, but it looks like no one else has a chance to beat them. See the X-Prize's graphic after the jump.
