Another teardrop car:

They have a photo slideshow, and I can't link any images directly. Here's some on another site:




A rear steering reverse trike - has some technical challenges; but folks have been building low drag cars for a while.

I *think* I've seen this car before, but I don't think it is in this thread:

1996 Fioravanti Flair - Studios





The 1996 Fioravanti Flair apparently has a Cd of 0.18 - which is very impressive given it does not have a narrower rear wheel track.

I saw this car in another thread here recently, it caught my attention.

Quote:
The engineers concentrated much of ther attention on optimising surfaces and seams in the research phases and it is bordered on the lower edge by a profile engineered to supply downforce.
The swoosh up at the rear?

Quote:
Above certain speeds, depressing the brake pedal automaticaly activates the air brakes and only after this are the traditional brakes activated. Braking is more "natural" as a conseguence, especially when slowing, rather than stopping, the car.
I thought that was a Porsche-like Duck-Tail at first.

I'd swear I stood next to that car in the one auto museum or the other, but I can't find the picture to prove it.

Kind of like when I was standing next to a freshly built Porsche Carrera 4-cam engine on an engine stand—with a camera in my hand—and didn't think to take a picture or three.
