Aerodynamic Studies

One of the first steps in the creation of our car is the development of CAD3D* models and the subsequent study of their aerodynamics. This is an iterative optimization process we are using to achieve the most aerodynamic and appealing design!

In the following clips one can see the results of two of these simulations (on two different prototypes) generated by a CFD* software. It is possible to observe the flow around the vehicle body, to identify the flow separation zones and at last, to obtain an aerodynamic drag coefficient (which we aim to minimize).
