Super streamlined VW 'Bug' ( full boattail )

This was built on a VW 'beetle' chassis.

Ironic.


I wonder what his drag coefficient is now .

I've seen specs on that car somewhere... it's been around for awhile. I'll look through the history on my old systems and see what I can come up with over the next few days.

PS - I don't think anyone noticed the caster wheel on the back of the boat-tail... in case the car does a wheelie. :P

Ya, I think it's supposed to be a cockroach... nasty lookin'... and the caster's to avoid scraping the tail on a transition (driveway, entering a parking lot)... tho' you'd better have some momentum to keep it from hanging up the drive wheels!
