Those are some old posts, guess I only knew about it since 9/22/11

It is the classic shape many of us have been seeking to reach, although I haven't put it to the template yet.

I just cannot get over how tiny it is, and the choice of entry would be mind boggling to most overweight Americans.

The mid-body pinch on the lower half might do well in cross winds.

What do you think?

25 mpg using a thirsty gas turbine is pretty impressive if you ask me.

Quote:
Power is supplied by General Motors Corp.`s latest version of its AGT-5 automotive gas turbine engine, which is mounted amidships and linked to the accelerator pedal via a computerized ``drive-by-wire`` system, similar to that used on jet aircraft.
Compare to another aerodynamic car which can cruise at high speed, but only carries two.

Bugatti Veyron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quote:
EPA City: 8 miles per U.S. gallon
EPA Hwy: 14 miles per U.S. gallon
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bugatti_Veyron
Quote:
It has a drag coefficient of 0.41 (normal condition) and 0.36 (after lowering to the ground),[21] and a frontal area of 2.07 m2 (22.3 sq ft).[22] This gives it a drag area – the combination of drag coefficient and frontal area, represented as CdA – of 0.74 m2 (8.0 sq ft).
