There are at least two things that jump out at me, that are anti-efficient:

The wheels are way too open, and worse yet, they "point" in the wrong direction. They will "scoop" air into the wheel, and cause all sorts of turbulence.

Secondly, the rear spoiler lip angles upward, which will cause drag.
