    Very cool little car .

    Notice they did not finish , though no reason is given .

    But want to have a good laugh ? Toyota , as well as Prius owners thinks their Prius’s Cd is such a big deal when the French had this going on … what ……some 45 years ago !

    Nothing new under the sun my friends . Nothing much at all

    @ Rob – Aerodynamic Drag does not always equate to lift/downforce
