The fineness ratio is 5:1, but it loses the aero in the squared off undercarriage. Edison2 in-wheel front suspension?

Looks to hold some potential.

BMW Concept Coupe Mille Miglia - 2006
All about Global cars: BMW



Quote:
The design team responsible for the original 328 succeeded without the benefit of computers. Building models was the only option. But despite the digital revolution, modelling remains a fundamental part of the design process for today’s BMWs. The company’s designers remain loyal to this process as it connects them emotionally to the form of a new product. During the design of the BMW Concept Coupe Mille Miglia 2006, the designers took a step back in time and formed the car from plaster models rather than clay. Quite literally a more ‘hands-on’, labour intensive process. The result is a greater appreciation within the design team of why classic racing cars are perceived as more emotional and artistic objects than today’s computer-generated racing cars..............................

the science of aerodynamics was addressed with thoroughly modern techniques and design resolutions. Side panels and the rear section of the car were designed to allow turbulence-free flow of air up to the tail where the airflow is separated. Carbon-fibre underbody fins and diffusers on the front and rear aprons also contribute to the car’s aerodynamics. Meanwhile air intakes in the A-pillars, arranged in a slim Z-line, direct cooling air from the six-cylinder in-line engine and contribute to developing downforce and reducing turbulence at the wheel housings.

Now that's Retro. I don't see the Z-line in the A-pillar, though.


And I thought the Lamborghini Egoista ingress/egress was hard.

Look at the difference in the height from the top of the rear wheelwell to the body crease that runs into the taillight. The SAAB has more of the 1930s tail-dragger style.

They'll refer to it as 'lamp-black and kerosene.'

TriTrack Street

They'll need to be mindful of outward vision.Some canopies have been rated with 'Fun-House' optical characteristics.
On E-Z-HOOK's first outing their 10-degree canopy curvature helped for a crash at Bonneville.
