It's also the most aerodynamically efficient series- production mid-rear-engined berlinetta ever designed.
The engine, featuring a front fan with 16 carbon composite blades, each twisted into a thin, aerodynamically curved shape, is encased in a carbon composite pod, or nacelle, that gives it a diameter of 184 inches at the widest point.
Developed alongside the BMW 8 Series Coupe, BMW M8 and BMW M8 GTE endurance racer, it has a low centre of gravity, even weight distribution, lightweight construction using aluminium, magnesium and carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), aerodynamically optimised, almost lift-free body.
The first aerodynamically designed three-phase WAP-5 passenger electric locomotive will help reduce air drag at a higher speed for more energy efficiency and dynamically stable during high-speed operation.
The truck aims at simple and clean design which is also aerodynamically efficient with a spoiler and side protector," Hyundai said in a statement.
The vehicle features revised LED headlamps, front fog lights that now incorporate into the headlight cluster, a redesigned lower bumper with a sleeker profile and an aerodynamically efficient air intake, and rear with a remodelled boot lid, while both the Saloon and Tourer feature cleaner rear bumper styling with more body coloured areas.
It also comes with thinner windcreen pillars, sculpted front and rear bumpers, and under-engine and under-floor covers which help to make the new CR-V one of the most aerodynamically efficient vehicles in its class.
Privatisation is the obvious route to fly, but whether the bird can be persuaded into the air with aerodynamically challenging injuries remains to be seen.
"The fan blades are mostly stamp design and aerodynamically inefficient.
Aerodynamically, the bullet behaves identically with either twist direction since at supersonic speeds a pressure cone 'shields' the grooves of the bullet from the disrupting effects of air flow and drag.
The car's flowing bodywork has been aerodynamically optimised to deliver a drag coefficient of just 0.25, while beneath the skin is a new platform that reduces weight by up to 60kg over its predecessor.
