After they added new side windows, to open like in usual cars, the project got f...up. Worse aerodynamics, worse MPG, got uggly... But Steve Farbbo said in a interview the aerodynamics got better...
Without speek about the weight...quite heavy for a 2 seater vehicle.

But the most absurd was they said was expecting the drag to be CD: 0,05, like Morelli theoric, and the CD of 0,11 for type 1 version was a surprise for them. Everyone with basic knowledge should know the theoric number can't be reached after add wheels, even with good streamlined covers for wheels.
