Have any of you found more info on this cars drag ? I'd love to see a modern day test, but have not come across one yet.
With Aerohead planning a trip to the wind tunnel, perhaps I can build a 1/4 scale model of the car to confirm that Cd .
PM if you like the idea Phil !

*To give some of the new readers here an idea of just how good that a .13 drag coefficient is, consider that this streamliner 'car' has a Cd of .147 ...so pretty close to .15.


The Panhard is listed at .13, with some sources giving a Cd of .12 !
It's gonna have to be at least 1/3rd-scale to get a critical Reynolds number and correct coefficient.
