aerohead,

here's the best I can come up with for an overhead shot of the iMiev Sport
Air concept car.





Not very good, but you can see that in essence it has a rectangular plan-
form at all levels with verry little side-to-side taper aft of the max cross
section.

I notice that the prototype has nowhere near the swoopy lines that the
artist's drawing did... Reality, that is salability and day-to-day survivability,
rears its ugly head.

Hope this helps.
