The "re-expansion" of the sides at the rear is terrible for drag. ^^^

I agree, and the rear view in the link confirms some major disruption.

However, I included this design because of the beautiful greenhouse.

And the engine needs to be glass covered as with other Ferrari's, otherwise it is a near disaster.

I don't think we will see a tapered rear Ferrari in our life times, not even a design study such as this one.

I like it. It could work as a revese trike, but it would no longer be a Ferrrari.

I'd be more concerned about this:

The elegant silver wings topping off the design doubles as an air intake and automatically adjusting aerodynamic spoiler.
...and the lack of a passenger seat.

Yikes, I hadn't even noticed that. I guess that didn't keep him from winning the design competition though.

At the time the official announcement was claiming : "Without modifying the mechanical elements, the Andreau prototype compared to the original squared shape will allow 30% fuel savings at similar speeds. It will also allow a maximum speed 40% higher than the original."

They could take off the front fenders, move the front wheels closer together like the DeltaWing Nissan powered car from Le Mans. That would be wild.

All the supercars do it.They want the drogue effect and side pressure of the enormous booty for directional stability at over 200-mph.
If the body had plan taper to match that beautiful greenhouse,we'd have a great fuel-sipper.(Skinny tires would be nice too!)But you'd want to drive it at 'normal' speeds.

At high speed, would not there be separation just behind the front wheels, leaving the rest of the car in turbulent air?

zero air resistance

This cars unique design and location makes that it has no drag at all.
And it is free! Just go pick it up, nobody will stop you.
