My two options. Neither are really possible.

Option 1:
Car that weighed 1000 pounds or less, 2 or 4 cylinder engine (for balance) possibly 2 stroke engine (not sure about that) that made it's power below 4k. CVT transmission with tires capable of holding 150+ psi. It would have to have a super low drag cf and would have every pump electric and super light mag rims with moon type surfaces. The driver and the passenger should sit back to back (with the "trunk" between them) in the front while the engine and trans rode along in the back. It would be as long as it took to get a perfect aero shape at 55mph but super short. The rear view mirrors would be cameras and it would have a true instant MPG reading in the dash.

Option 2:
Electric or 2stroke inside of those bikes they break land speed records with, hooked to a CVT. The entire thing would be scaled up to fit two people but with no cargo room.
