Fasted car ever has low drag!

New world record for fastest car. They are finally focusing on low drag instead of crazy downforce and wings and stronger engines

Cd of 0.27 is the same as the new Prius and on a race car

But it's 2WD, has a V8, and has zero EV propulsion, beating the previous two records that did have EV propulsion.

' fastest '

Their claim must be considered within the context of a 'straight-line' condition, powertrain, and zero-to-terminal velocity-to zero performance.
If the car were on a closed-course, high-speed oval, it would likely require additional direct downforce-generating apparatus, like GM's short-tail OLDS AEROTECH, 4-cyl., also of Cd 0.27 at Firestone's test course, Ft. Stockton, Texas, 1987.

Only on the rear, to allow the fronts I suspect max cooling on the 250-0 mph portion which is really tough with no aero drag/DF to assist, it's all brakes.
