The question deserves a thread of it's own. I'd look to get equal improvement in aero and drivetrain (pit the two against each other). With aero and your probable use case, most of the opportunity is in the underside and wheelwells.

We are operating at an overall mechanical efficiency of only four percent… Therefore, we find that if we increase the overall mechanical efficiency to only twelve percent we can take care of everybody. That three-fold increase in the overall efficiency can only be accomplished by redesign. – R. Buckminster Fuller
