and did you know that brick-shaped Alfa saloon thats in the Italian job (the police cars), was as aerodynamic in the 1960s as the Sierra was in the 80s? (the Alfas CD was .30, and, twenty years later, so was the Sierras. Not bad eh?)
If its the Calibra, then I cant think of any mass produced car that had a Cd of less than .26. And the Astra...yeah, the GTE was aerodynamic...but then bear in mind its class comprised boxes that included the Escort and the Golf!
OK - Im probably wrong! For some reasons 0.31 sticks in my head though! What I know for sure is that the figure was used to advertise the car a lot. Remember the one with the Aboriginal bloke in a desert??
hi Ben, it may have been that the small engined ones had skinny tyres and maybe they were .26cd (making it the lowest cd of any mass produced car) and the bigger engined ones were .31cd, making it the lowest cd for a coupe? If only my memory was as good as it used to be!
