Sorry, I did not mean to sound rude.

I'm sure when it's painted a pretty shiny color it will be much prettier.

The practical aspect of door operation is appreciated.

I did recently photo an Enzo Ferrari which somehow gets away with a similar detail.

And the rear vent facing forward is also rather large.




The downside:
Ferrari Enzo
Quote:
The Enzo has an aerodynamic drag coefficient as poor as 0.36, virtually back to the Testarossa era. However, like Formula 1 cars, its emphasis is on downforce and therefore handling. When you have 660 horsepower on tap and 217mph top speed, you know how important downforce is.
In my opinion, you have something closer to large motorcycle faring/cowling. However when compared to most cars, that is still a very low frontal area, so it's probably a wash.

Some positive changes worth considering.
