Your fuel log is headed in the right direction

A 10°, or even 12-14°, angle from horizontal is good, but adding that to your roof's slope may be too much. Also, what you need is a smoother transition between roofline and Kammback.
Make a template of the transition with the correct angles and tape it to a level ruler:

BTW, have you considered an MPGuino or other instrumentation?

For such a small car, both should be possible.
Remember that the small car has a huge (for it) engine under its hood - Seicentos came with a 900 or 1100 cm3 engine, Maczo squeezed a 1200cm3 engine with almost twice the power of the original

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
