If you are lucky enough to be in Germany you might want to check out the high tech Shell Eco Marathon Europe 2009 entries. The event will be at the EuroSpeedway Lausitz track from May 7th to 9th. One of the teams competing is Team Aurora from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, see some of their car pictures below. 

"The current European Shell Eco-marathon record for a combustion engine entry was set in 2004 by the team from Lycée La Joliverie (France) at 3,410 km on the equivalent of a single litre of fuel.For prototype vehicles using fuel cells, the record is even more impressive. In 2005, the hydrogen-powered vehicle built by Swiss team ETH Zurich achieved a projected 3,836 km on the equivalent of a single litre of fuel. This is the equivalent of driving from Paris to Moscow!
