2014 Volkswagen XL1

Looking more like something out of the Jetsons than a hybrid auto, Volkswagen is set to debut the XL1 at the Geneva Auto Show next month. This featherweight two-seater boasts an extraordinarily slippery drag coefficient of .19 paired with a low center of gravity which clicks off 0 to 60 times of 12.1 seconds. 12.1 seconds? Despite this lethargic acceleration, VW was more interested in a different kind of performance. They might refer to it as “avoiding the gas pump” performance as the XL1 gets over 260 mpg thanks to a combination of a 47 hp diesel engine and 27 hp electric motor. While acceleration is not its strong point, this hybrid can cruise at 62 mph using just 8.3 hp and reaches 99 mph. All in all, the sleek styling and unsurpassed mileage make for a fun to drive hybrid. Looks like Toyota better get back to the drawing board.

The flask, by nature, is a clandestine item. It slips in and out of interior suit pockets on the sly. Why not bring an added dose of covertness to the whole ordeal with this All Black ZYX Flask. The stainless steel flask sports a mysterious motif that’s supported by the alphabet being curiously printed in reverse on the front. Each All Black ZYX Flask holds 6 ounces of the good stuff. If an MI6 agent were to take a swig on the job, we like to imagine this would be his flask of choice.
