Hucho says we can get the 12% down to only 2% although it requires elaborate inlet and outlet ducting,the latter being a challenge for production cars which aren't configured for the space necessary for the ducting.
Here is a link to a low drag cooling system by Walter Korff of Lockheed,designer of the 409-mph 'Goldenrod' streamliner.
