Fantastic!

This car confirms what the experts have been saying about aerodynamics on this website all along. But no disk wheel covers!? Did anyone spot where he is hiding his front turn signals? Beautiful build. It should be super stable with all the weight in the nose. Now if I could just find a diesel SmartCar donor car...
