Oh, we did a few tests to impress the head of some firm but nobody cared much then. There was one though; a rear-engined chassis with rubber suspension, a little 32 hp Ford engine and thermo-syphon cooling to avoid a radiator. The standard Ford with that engine just did 105 km/h; ours reached 140 km/h and got 17.5 km/I (49 mpg) at a steady 80 km/h. It was used as a courier car during the war.

Ford engined Streamlined Speclai[sic], which was fitted with a wind-cheating undertray and had an exceptionally low Cd.
A courier vehicle like the Volkshart-Saggita V2.
