Lucid Air: World's most aerodynamic car

A drag coefficient of 0.21 makes it .03 more efficient than the Model S and .04 more than the Taycan. It should have up to 1800HP and up to 400mi range.

Wish the new 3 series grill was that small and sleek. Looking to buy new 3 or 4 series, but can't get over the enormous grill on the 3 series - even when blacked out...and the pics of the new 4 grill look like something from bad scifi movie...outrageous!

Looks great from the front quarter. The rest is kinda eh but the specs sound amazing.

Let's see if it turns into a legit car instead of vaporware. It's good to see these EV companies popping up although I wonder if they're all essentially acquisition targets for the established automakers.

Well look at the difficulties Tesla had in it's early stages... and that's with an almost unlimited budget. It would be near impossible for someone to freelance it in this day and age unless they only plan on building one single car every few years.

They say the most aero dynamic shape in nature is the raindrop

Youll notice the most aero cars try to mimic the raindrop horizontally
