Are those from this year?

NeilBlanchard — Consider the use case.The roof rack and ground clearance is a given. The nose is better than a Jeep, the sides are interesting (maybe more for visibility than low drag) with Tropfenwagen fenders, and the rear seems to echo current CUV thinking.

You're hoping for a pontoon fendered off-road car?

Im told the system dusen't flip my pictures. Usually its more random, this is a first for all to be upside down. Bonneville, Utah. spent a week with some of the fastest people on the planet

Yes Sept 2019 I was a corce Stewart at the 3.5 mi of the short corse this year .
That dodge hit 227.5xx mph record was 227.8xx mph
The bronze Carbonite car had a bad year. Blew a rear tire @320mph they have to investigate if the tire took the body out or if the body took out the tire(contact) last time I saw the car it was 100ft above the track and fireballs coming out the trailing parts. Then the short track got bussy with a spin before the hulk came to rest. .

Missed this one a few years back. Couldn't find it here.

Calling it a "Streamliner" makes it aerodynamic, right?

Supposed to come out in 2020, with a 0-60 of under 2-seconds.

AWD with an all electric planned in the future.

I can see from the website the designer is a graphic designer (2D design) and had a love affair with Lamborghini in the 1980's, this explains some of the 2-Dimensional thinking remnants as they are twisted into 3D shapes.

Don't get me wrong, this is a very 3D shape (w/aero considerations), but it got there with 2D thinking - in my opinion.

Add to the fact that any ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) cooling requirements are going to kill most good aerodynamics, take Bugatti for instance and there is something left on the table.

A nice try, but does not make my heart go pitter-patter, as much as I want it to.

I foresee serious overheating issues unless lots of HP taken out for fan cooling. I'm stating this as compared to similar cars in this class. Maybe they are using a new type of radiator (just a guess)?

I have to agree with Neil Blanchard as I'm straining to find even the smallest of aerodynamic details in this design.

The CFD presentation must have looked like a 4th of July fireworks display.

I like the design, just saying that even with the wheels off or covered, it's a mess.

Well, I give up. The Tropfenwagen fenders and bullet nose don't count then.

I like the Streamliner SS more, but the use case is less apparent to me. It's no grocery-getter.
