Most Aerodynamic car?

What do you guys think is the most Aerodynamic car you can BUY. Like one that is actually mass produced for the public.

Thanks,
Anohaakten

Aerodynamic how? Most of the really "aerodynamic" cars actually have higher drag coefficients than they could have because they are specifically designed to produce downforce to keep the car on the road. This downforce increases acceleration potential, braking and handling. It does not help the car's top speed, because it makes the car LESS streamlined.

Did you also hear that we ride them to school and work?

There are millions of them. They're a pest out west on the big farms and stuff. A lot of people go hunting them. You can eat them too (mmmm.. roo steak). Apparently we're the only country that eats one of the animals on our coat of arms.

If you go to animal sanctuaries and stuff, you get the ones that are used to people, and you can pat them and hand feed them and stuff. The wild ones just bolt whenever you come anywhere near them .... especially if you're coming after them on a motorbike.

Wow, I definetly need to venture "down unda" sometime. Hmmm, I wonder what a bald eagle tastes like.

You guys have some sweet rock too! AC/DC, Midnight Oil, Men at Work.

So a GTO is a Holden Manaro? Man, how cheap can GM get?
Maybe if I ever get a car I'll take a road trip there or somethin'.


^haha I'm not that dumb

Holden is a GM brand though. They used to call themselves General Motors Holden. My '74 Holden Torana has GMH badging in places.

Yeah i know, I was just sayin' that its pretty cheap of them to take one of their foreign cars and slap a GTO badge on it. A lot of american muscle-heads got really miffed about it.

lmao, just shows how lazy us americans are. Can't even redesign a well sought-after muscle car. We have to bum it off another country.

I thought Holden was to Pontiac like Roush is to Ford.
