The design [ edit ]

Out with normal lines, the oval body which is inspired by sculptured carefully to minimize edges resulting of low wind and low coefficient drag, possible the among all of its rivals and may, in put to shame some of the smaller The low cd also contributes to better economy and overall stability.
