Bentley Aero Ace
2 Attachment(s)
I haven't seen anything about this concept car on the forums yet but I have to say it's got some "Aeroappeal" to bad it will probably never go into production but just looking at it makes me happy I found which turned me into a eco nut in training.
It doesn't show as good CD numbers as it looks.

"The Bentley aero ace is a revolutionary aerodynamic concept that has been developed to become a part of the future Bentley design aesthetic, as well as reducing energy consumption. The design was inspired to signify the raw aggression of a sporting vehicle, while paying close attention to the aerodynamic properties of each element of the vehicle. The adjustable aerofoil / spoiler feature double wishbone suspension to maximize the efficiency. The electric motor cooling system features air intake and incorporates diffusers that help air flow to create down-force. The wheels are semi enclosed that improves aerodynamics, while the 1+1 seating arrangement offers focused driving experience."

It's nothing but some electrons in a computer. And for good reason- aside from the mystic side shot it looks kind of gross imo. The profile got me all excited and then... :(

I like the concept but it\'s gotta be flatter and sleeker to look like that but a great start.

It looks like one of those cars that looks really aero but isn\'t.

Not exactly new for Bentley.

...check out and enjoy the other aero design studies.

The new Porsche 911 has a lower Cd number and seats four people.

Interesting profile as others have pointed out, maybe a take off point for someone with some time and talent to take it in another direction.

Kind of reminds me of the Batmobile...

The design of that thing just makes me sad, i\'m convinced that even a small child, just taught the very basics of aerodynamics, could design a car with less drag, more downforce, and the same interior space.
