I suspect that the ReVendo'n could be aerodynamic if converted to electric.

Then all the air breathing or massive drag holes for cooling a V-12 could be closed off.

This idea came about one day while looking at a mold for a Bugatti Veyron kit car knock off. Pretty sure this discussion was in this forum about two years ago.

EDIT: I could be wrong about something - oops.

The closest car I could get C of D numbers on is the Lamborghini Aventador, amazingly it's number is a very low. How low is still debatable.

Source-1: Cd = 0.23

Source-2: Cd = 0.33

Source-3: Cd = 0.35

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4
(A) 1.93 m
(cd) 0.35
(cd A) = 0.67
at 200km/h
downforce front 4kg
lift rear 37kg
Let's toss out the low and high numbers, that's a decent Cd is you ask me (0.33), not the same exact model but close enough for now.
