The air cooled engine already being in the rear and designed to be there both in the kit and the original Fiat plus the front end being a 1 piece replaceable 'clip' and the body 'tub' being fibreglass including the rear engine bay and mounted to a separate steel chassis means that aero options should very much be possible regardless of keeping it air cooled or switching to water cooled or even future electric/hybrid etc. As long as rules for lighting etc. are adheared to.
