Loved this quote.
But puny humor aside, aerodynamics does play a huge role in a cars performance.

Maybe the engine is powerful enough to overcome the aerodynamic drag and still have power left to have a go at the track.

Correct me if I am wrong, doesn't BRABUS mod cars..err..Mercs??
Yes, it tunes mercs. And this is nothing but a tuned mercs g-wagen.
The engine sure has the power to go at track, but the limiting factor is the cars handling, which wont be a match for the great engine.

But if the design was aerodynamic enough, the engine wont have to face the drag leading to increased power output.

Aren't we reverting to square one? Hope this isn't a rip-off..
A dual turbo V-12, can do wonders. Weight reduction would be maximum. I think carbon-fibre parts.

As said by Enzo Ferrari - "Aerodynamics are for those who can not make good engines." :biggrin:

Did he actually say that???
Must have had his tongue-in-cheek, since I am yet to see a Ferrari that is not sleek!!
