Perhaps a motorcycle.

The Prius has a very low Cd and a variable gear ratio, so that would be my candidate in a car. If 2 seats were acceptable, the first gen Insight.

Generally any car that gets good efficiency at lower speeds will tend to outperform other cars at higher speeds.

No sense in making a purchasing decision based on this though unless driving 100 MPH is regularly done, in which case, I would buy something with a high safety rating.
