Here is an interesting start to an Aero car. Springfield MO, Craigslist, $4500.00, at least that what Yahoo news said. I looked there a little and could not find it for sale.

It's way out ahead of nothing,but better had they started the plan taper at the headrest position rather than aft.
FIAT was able to drop a research vehicles Cd from 0.21,to 0.17 in part,by moving the maximum body cross section forward from between the wheelbase,to the cowl area position.

Shame that they didn't do the 'Moby Dick' tail instead. A very small front airdam would have handled the Beetle's front lift issues.
