Finally someone has implemented this. The aerodynamic drag from the front grille has long bugged me while driving and I've always wondered just how much drag is there. Well the engineers have built and tested it to be around 7% improvements and if that was in MPG it would be from 40 to 42.8 MPG.

 

 

Also the UK Focus website has cool background music...

That would so cool if that was Volt 2.0....

 

On another note:

 

At our first reveal for the 2013 Cadillac ATS, Mark Reuss, President of GM North America proclaimed, ?This is the car to finally challenge the German cars at their own game and win.?

Citro?n did it before with the DS3, bringing a DS3 Racing limited edition hatchback to the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, now it's time for the DS4 Racing concept. As with its predecessor it's been developed by Citro?n Racing, the arm that preps the car that's won the WRC seven times running.

 

As you'd expect, the DS4 Racing concept is 35 millimeters lower and has a 55-mm wider track, with words like "bigger" and "more powerful" getting lots of use elsewhere. Go is provided by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that gets 256-horsepower, and stop is handled by four-pot calipers up front on 380-mm discs ? 40-mm larger than on the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet we just drove.

 

A press release with more specs is after the jump, and all angles matt-gray beauty are in the high-res gallery. We'll see it live next week in Geneva.

It seems like power density just keeps on rising....crazy. I just hope they keep the reliability as they increase all this horsepower.

 

Its better than GM's engine I talked about here.

As I understand, you can keep increasing Turbo boost, but the higher you go....the higher pressure the system has to handle and less reliability as a result.

Yeah, I was talking to my coworker who's cousin has Cobalt SS who replaced his supercharger with a turbo doing 260 BHP at the wheels. He was going to go for 400, but we were talking about gaskets etc. Aiming 30 lbs of BOOST baby.

I don't remember.

 

I haven't sat in your car in a long time. I know when I do I usually crank the seat all the way downwards and in a lot of other people's cars I hunch down a bit so I don't have to crank my neck to the side.
