Bentley Aero Ace

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 EcoModders.com 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.

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.

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.
