Yet another Golden Submarine replica. This one has a bobbed rear end.Note the roughness in the reflection in the second pic uppper right compared to the sheet plastic window.

How to accessorize:

And of course the afternmarket is about keeping the embodied energy in an old car body on the road.

I know it's over-powered but look at the build quality:





A hint of Aston Martin Valkyrie? Validated in CFD, or just looks right?


The Ring Brothers top anything Ed Roth ever did.


edit: I looked the name up

Enyo - Greek Mythology
Enyo was a goddess in Greek mythology, sister and companion of the god of war, Ares, and daughter of Zeus and Hera. She was the goddess of war and destruction; in some cases, she was closely linked to Eris , goddess of strife.

Other than giving it that Arcimoto very high drag look, what does the wide front end do to justify itself?

FUV have 145-15s.

It goes with the open-wheel paradigm. Look at the air scoops on the brakes and the cantilever A-arms. That's F1 engineering territory.

I suspect those winglets pierced by the exhaust header is to feed air to the scoops abaft the doors.

So then: just odd looks since this wouldn't be allowed in a F1 race

All analogies break down. Or is that a simile?
Quote:
Simile
A simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two things. Similes differ from other metaphors by highlighting the similarities between two things using comparison words such as "like", "as", "so", or "than", while other metaphors create an implicit comparison.Wikipedia
It wouldn't be competitive, but might compete in Gymkana.

A study in contrasts (Chevrolet edition)


justacarguy.blogspot.com/2022/11/the-ringbrothers-strode


justacarguy.blogspot.com/2022/11/shobird-riddler-award-winner-1931-chevy

The Camaro appears to have a highly evolved radiator ducting, but it's not obvious.

The 1931 five-window may appear unfit, but it was built to purpose and won.

At the provided link:



I'm not impressed. Those side scoops might be adequate for a 40HP VW. The rul;es say the car has to drive onto the floor under it's own power. I'd speculate that a few minutes at half-throttle would overheat the thing.
