Because of aerodynamics! (and engine power :) ). At high speeds, almost all resistance the car has to overcome stems from aerodynamic drag. So reducing it, while maintaining a good aerodynamic balance, is the key. In this video, we walk around the 7X Design Rayo, a highly modified Lamborghini Huracan. The car was almost entirely rebodied, with highly streamlined shapes. We reduced the drag by over 28%! There are a lot of aerodynamic elements on the car that made this possible: - Extended & revised front splitter: guiding more high speed air underneath the car to create downforce through the Bernoulli effect - Front air curtains: accelerating air to form a curtain alongside the wheels, reducing their drag - Nearly flat underfloor to allow the flow underneath the car to accelerate as much as possible - Ventilation of the front & rear wheel arches - Revised position of the side air intakes - Diffuser optimization: reduction of rear wheel wake disturbance, wider & more organic shape to maintain attached flow - Open rear grill to aid cooling For more information, visit: - https://7x.design/ - https://www.envisagegroupltd.com/ - https://www.adrianoraeli.com/ - https://undergroundracing.com/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The AirShaper videos cover the basics of aerodynamics (aerodynamic drag, drag & lift coefficients, boundary layer theory, flow separation, reynolds number...), simulation aspects (computational fluid dynamics, CFD meshing, ...) and aerodynamic testing (wind tunnel testing, flow visualization, ...). We then use those basics to explain the aerodynamics of (race) cars (aerodynamic efficiency of electric vehicles, aerodynamic drag, downforce, aero maps, formula one aerodynamics, ...), drones and airplanes (propellers, airfoils, electric aviation, eVTOLS, ...), motorcycles (wind buffeting, motogp aerodynamics, ...) and more!
