I assume this shape has been in a few wind tunnels before - so it qualifies.

One of Jaray's wind tunnel maquettes. This shape would form the basis of his car design patents.

Up for consideration were a few million dollars’ worth of classic Benzes from the 1950s: a 1952 W194 300 SL race car, a 1954 W198 300 SL production car and a 1951 W188 300S coupe. The results were interesting. The race car weighed in with a drag coefficient of .376 (wind speed 80.77 MPH) the production 300 SL was a close second at .389 while the 300S had a drag coefficient of .670.

* David Greenlees over at The Old Motor this week showed us an early approach to wind tunnel testing, using scales to measure the various forces on the car.
