No. The innocence went first. Then the attitude, the vocabulary, the hair, then the mind.

I need to point out that they did an incredible job at getting the cooling system so low in drag. Check out the slot vent on the hood, and the side vents above and behind the front wheels. These are both actually improving the drag AND getting the engine cooled with far less intake.

I have never seen this anywhere else, except on race cars.
