Given that a square box can have a drag coefficient as high as .8 or more, this should pull great. Try towing a regular enclosed car trailer with a Nissan Maxima, ain't gonna work.
The trailer is more of a high performance vehicle than the race car it it carries.It would be justice if it created quite a stir at the race track and provoked an animated discussion among all the other racers.
She looks like a production piece.I don't think any onlooker would guess its actual origin.
The designer/constructor should feel very good about what they've pulled off.
PS Additional photos from a high vantage point would be great for showing off the body geometry.
