1100lb, 30kwh, 350 miles. 12.8 watts per lb-mile. EVTV's rule of thumb is 10 watts per lb-mile.

Ford X-1 looks like a GT40 roadster with interesting add-ons in the front.

The coupe version wasn't the last word in aerodynamics, but this one has the potential to be a slight improvement in lowering the area in the CdA formula.

I suspect there is a static air bubble in the cockpit (like many targa's) and the air flows over and around the windscreen.
