...and so it proved at MIRA's wind tunnel, where a potential drag co-efficient of 0.27 achieved. Across Europe, competing manufacturers were coming up with similar solutions (look at the 1982 Audi 100).

Well, maybe occasionally.

In this case I got all excited about underwater scale models after watching YouTube videos about Yoshi Suzuka.

If it wasn't late I'd snag some screencaps of his desktop window tunnel in 1/24th scale with LED scales under each wheel to show downforce, & etc.

Here's a video about the Edison2 VLC with some tuft testing:

I am definitely confused about the intake and the exhaust, though.

Novitec group introduces Novitec Torado for Lamborghini vehicles

Quote:
Pictured here is the striking design of the Lamborghini Aventador made even more aggressive by Novitec Torado designers that upgraded the Aventador with a two-piece front spoiler, central front blade, and newly designed air intakes. New trunk lid with integrated air ducts and new air vents in front were also installed. Rocker panels, carbon-fiber mirror covers and new side air intakes were also installed on the side. At the rear, the Aventador was installed with a rear wing which is available in two versions that increases the downforce on the rear axle that’s further improved by the rear diffuser, larger air intakes and outlets were also installed to optimize ventilation of the engine compartment.

More of a Photoshop and Marketing image, but despite being fake, gets a concept across.

Proving once again, that you can put anything in a wind tunnel and brag about it.

Mercedes says has the lowest drag coefficient of any production car. Here's a good pic of the CLA in the wind tunnel.

Once approved, '79 styling was refined in the wind tunnel to trim air drag and thus enhance fuel economy.
