I would have thrown up my hands and given up on the idea of templates and boat-tails, except for the fact that the Mercedes Concept IAA dropped it's cD lowest with the addition of a short tail section.

So, Aerohead - if this design had just left off that shelf spoiler, and instead followed the template curve, would the cD have been lower ?
