That is pretty awesome.
I was told that the shape of those side air scoops are a design that is meant to be low drag without turbulence or noise.
The body looks really well done, crisp lines, not like the average one off.

Looking at the original photo, it doesn't look like there is a phone in his hand. Can't tell if he is waving or even looking at me. Might be blocking the sun from his eyes, or I caught him lowing his hand from blocking the sun.

Nice looking piece! I'd suggest checking the local colleges, universities, tech institutes. (I googled around a bit but didn't find anything.)
