2002-2007 Cd 0.10 Audi station wagon

' Within the next fifteen, twenty years, I think, ( Cd ) 0.10 could be reached, because this Cd value is the same as that of a penguin, a fish/bird that doesn't look very streamlined. In terms of a car, it's a station wagon version. And if nature could build a station wagon at 0.10, then I think, with our development and research, it should be our target to be as good as nature was by itself.'
Dr. Ferdinand Piech, Vice-Chairman, Board of Management; Director, Research and Development, Audi, Interview, AUTOMOBILE Magazine, page-82, November, 1987.

You only need to see 'half' of it. Lengthwise.
