The ultimate aerodynamic Grand Prix machine to ever be raced.
2.278 Kgs @ 150mph/240 kmh with 285 Kgs of drag
Lift-to-drag ratio: 8:1
But even he was suposed to have a daddy, the FW08 six wheeler
It's Lift to Drag ratio of 13 to 1 IT is the equivalent of GOD ALLMIGHTY in terms aero efficiency. Ofcourse it was banned before racing for giving heart attacks to FIA officials with its figures.
A modern F1 car has an Lift to Drag ratio of 3.5 to 1.
In other words a lot less downforce combined with a lot more drag to prevent the cars from going fast.
You just can't beat a good ol' ground effects 6 wheeler in the terms of aero efficiency.
