@ MIN: That actually sounds more logical, being that a Land Rover is an SUV and from my experiences with trucks and SUVs, I can tell you that truck and SUV engines rev lower than what sports car manufacturers like. A BMW engine and transmission are a more reliable choice and more responsive.

I'm guessing the engine is a 5.0 liter V8 from a Land Rover.

BR open tops never have a good cd... specially with such old lines... round looks does mean nothing in aerodynamic effectives. Big factor of good or bad cd is the engine and the size and placement of its water cooler and airflow through engine compartment.

The Drag Coefficient is NO where near Cd.51, where on earth did you get that? and why on earh would you think its even close to that?

REAL Cd.38, Dwon 1 from the first Aero 8 Model.

It looks crosseyed, lol, I like the wheels, though, I've got a thing for black wheels.

Damn, it's aerodynamics of the fridge... no wonder then why it reaches only 274 kph..

And it looks hideous, purely classic lines of Plus8 are muuuch better looking.
