Aerodynamic influenced cars at the 2013 Orphan Car Show in Ypsilanti Michigan.

Only had my cell phone, sorry about the quality.

It visually conveys its slippery reality, in an effective way.

My issue with the Avion is that it is a relatively cramped 2 seat design with lots of "voids" around the car. The door sills are pretty wide, for example. Compared to the VW XL1, the size difference becomes fairly stark.

And both are quite good looking, as is the Schlörwagen and the Maybach Stromlinienkarosserie. Actually, the latter car is the "ancestor" to the Avion, I think?

Le Petit Fumiste Illustré - N°6 - Patent page



Quote:
For a start, his ‘extreme streamlining’ sedan wriggled, like a fish. It had the aerodynamics of a perfect raindrop, unsullied by a single straight line or sharp angle. It had a fully articulated spine. Soft skin that stretched and wrinkled. To all intents and purposes, it was alive.

GM Aero 2000 concept car from 1982 with a drag coefficient of 0.23. *It has been said to influence the design of contemporary hybrid/electric cars. If you’ve seen the documentary*Who Killed the Electric Car?,*
the featured EV1*resembles*the Aero 2000 quite a bit. If you haven’t seen the movie, it is an interesting piece of film.
