2. P1800 — pace Morelli
3. 3CC — Where the C30 came from?

And I thought 5000hp cars were a modern thing. Only 20 Rolls-Royce R-type V-12 aero engines were ever built and this car had two of them.

The door windows remind me of the Subaru SVX.

I like the way the way the exhaust unapologetically punches through the laminar flow to keep the exhaust from discoloring the fender. I was thinking of it as a Bellflower pipe, but they weren't through the body:

Ain't no laminar flow there anyways.

I'm more interested in the rendering in the background.

That's the original concept by Sasson (sp?).The pre-production SAAB 92,based upon it was reported @ Cd 0.32.
The production 92 was Cd 0.35.

Looks rather aerodynamic, I can see an air-fence at the front too.

Take for instance, the flaps at the bottom of the front bumper cover—they open and close to assist in aerodynamics.

The GTbyCitroën features innovative equipment like enlarged air intakes at the front, a flat underside, and a mobile spoiler and air diffuser at the back. All these features play an active role in reducing lift and drag, pinning the car to the ground.
