DeltaWing Technologies Inc. today revealed how the groundbreaking DeltaWing architecture – a highly aerodynamic and lightweight design currently competing in IMSA sports car road races in the form of the DeltaWing racecar – could look as a street-legal, four-passenger car.
The rendering depicts an exciting, aerodynamic car design that evokes motion, energy and speed even at a standstill and is unlike any of today’s road-going automobiles. And yet the innovative DeltaWing shape is a true form-follows-function design that can significantly reduce aerodynamic drag to help increase fuel efficiency. Another attribute of the shape is considerably less overall mass. When combined with light-yet-strong materials such as lightweight steel, aluminum and advanced composite materials, the result is a car that can deliver any given performance level with significantly reduced fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional automobiles.
