Default New VW Micro Car for $600

Got this in mail a while ago.

NEW CAR- FOR $600------- New Single Seat VW (INR:: 27965 Rs)
This will beat all the low fuel consumption cars in the world ! It is a newly developed single seat car with highly aerodynamic tear-shape . It is ready to be launched as a single-seater for sale in Shanghai in 2010 for a mere RMB 4,000 (US$600)!
Interested? Wait till you learn that it will cruise at 100-120 Km/Hr with an unbelievable 0.99litre/100Km (258 miles/gallon)!
Impressed? Totally, after you have read all the details below about the hi-tech and space-age material input into this car!
The Most Economic Car in the World will be on sale next year
Better than Electric Car - 258 miles/gallon: IPO 2010 in Shanghai
From conception to production: 3 years and the company is headquartered in Hamburg , Germany .
Will be selling for 4000 yuan, equivalent to US$600..
Gas tank capacity = 1.7 gallons
Speed = 62 - 74.6 Miles/hour
Fuel efficiency = 258 miles/gallon
Travel distance with a full tank = 404 miles

I thought it weighed 600 pounds which has somehow converted to $600?

Does anyone believe that you can get whats pictured above for $600? unless you pedal it?

600 Dollars seems to be very less for this thing. There has to some mistake. If its true then it is going to be selling like hot cakes.
