7X Design Rayo - How to design a 300 mph hypercar based on a Lamborghini Huracan

For more information, visit https://www.airshaper.com or email info@airshaper.com ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Have you ever wondered how hypercars can reach incredible top speeds? 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/ A massive thanks to Envisage Group for hosting us for this video!
