Thanks in advance.
I just meant that, according to that article from VW's media arm the cD 0.16 attributed to the Sagitta was published in automotive press in the 1950s--well before Hucho's tests, so not a misattribution of his later measurements of Lange car models but a relic of unreliable, older wind tunnel data.
