Nothing spectacular, but RENNTECH borrowed our aero tricks




April « 2010 « RENNTECH :: NEWS

"This past weekend RENNTECH participated in a Standing Mile event at the Dade-Collier airstrip. There was a fairly decent turnout and our tuned C63 drew all sorts of attention. Last week, we fabricated some unique aero enhancements in-house for this event. These exterior additions bumped the cars standing mile speed up nearly 9mph – 185MPH! Proving that aerodynamics has just as much an effect on a vehicles ability to “go fast” as its actual performance output. Here are a few pics and a video of the C63 in “standing-mile trim”."

Brabus did the same thing... only prettier:



Their car is supposedly capable of 230 mph... but it's obviously sporting more than just aero-tweaks...

Maybe we will see aero become mainstream again.

Ford Fusion
Lincoln MKZ (love it)
Chrysler 200
Prius's
Civics
Sonata
Benz
Mazda 6

Not good enough. Last time I checked, the manual transmission insight still holds the crown of most fuel efficient liquid fuel powered car even though it ~15 years old.

The problem is, what can you do with a 1st gen Insight besides commute or a trip for 2? Most people need more car. I'm not turning my nose up at clear progress when a roomy sedan with a big 4 cyl returns near 40 mpg highway driven by average person
