DIY hitch-mounted boat tail on Audi A2 3L (photos)

Found out about this Audi + tail from an inbound link to my thread about the Blackfly's prototype boat tail.

An Audi A2 forum was reacting to this vehicle:

Did a Google search of the text on the side of the tail, which led me to a Netherlands web site documenting the build: aerotail

EDIT: the tail builder has joined EcoModder and posted a thread here:

More photos & info (you'll have to Google Translate it, unless you read Dutch) here:
