Zoleco's new wings

I have redesigned the wings on the Zoleco.I was not pleased with the way the car looked from the back.Now I feel the Jetsons would be proud. What do you think?

You've quantified the "less drag" claim how?

The redesign was focused mainly on appearance and visual impact.What ended up happening was that when the visual AH-HAH moment arrived I found the angle of attack of the upper surface was reduced from 7 to 3 degrees.Common sense tells me that this will result in less drag.Wouldn't you agree ? I have no way of putting a number on it at present.

You can't know the angle of attack until you tuft test to determine the local airflow direction.

C'mon, throw some wheels under this bad boy and let's see what she'll do!

btw, here's the image:



And I think this is the old design:
