A style to which I should aspire (frameless wrap-around windows in '37):

Remove the rear wing and what do we have?

Daytona meets Suzuka: The Mooncraft Shiden RT-16
https://supergtworld.wordpress.com/2...-shiden-rt-16/

Quote:
It is the pending farewell to the Daytona Prototypes that brings us to look back at a car that was, in essence, a Daytona Prototype repurposed for Super GT – and a car that became one of the most controversial, yet revered challengers in GT300 history: The Mooncraft Shiden RT-16.

The Shiden was the brainchild of Mooncraft Engineering’s Takuya Yura, one of the most respected designers in Japanese motorsport. The car took its name from one of Yura’s earliest prototype designs, the Shiden 77, which raced in the Fuji Grand Championship Series – one of the earliest organized sports car racing championships in Japan.
I was a big fan of this car when working on my coroplast model a few years ago (two-part body thread).

The tail looks high on that, but hey no rear wing to induce drag, right?

I could not find Cd numbers on it unfortunately.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamaha_OX99-11

Something more current from that company (Yamaha), again no Cd numbers.

I would like to think this was a wind tunnel tested design and the rear window behaves much like the EV-1 Impact GM electric car of years ago.

Some graphic artist does not understand wind tunnel airflow very well.

Hybrid-like fuel economy and emissions to come from Peugeot’s even greener 207
https://www.goauto.com.au/future-mod...-27/15402.html

Quote:
Apart from the taller gearing and a small-displacement compression-ignition engine, the 207 Economique achieves its remarkable fuel economy via a 5mm drop in ride height, a redesigned front bumper, 15-inch steel wheels with ‘aero’ hubcaps and low-rolling-resistance Michelin tyres.

The Economique has an aerodynamic drag coefficient of 0.274Cd – down from the standard 207’s 0.30Cd – while its claimed 0-100km acceleration time is reduced to a respective 11.7 seconds and 115km/h.
Click on link to see the rear top and side wing-like spoiler panels.

Non-vented and flush but they provide a clean release edge for the air and I assume add to the aerodynamics.

Two-tone Kamm-back?



I'm fascinated by cars of that era that have that pillarless daylight opening.
