1978 Colani New RS Sportscar 01

Colani New RS -

The Colani New RS was a sportscar proposed by Colani in 1978.

The plastic bodied car served as a preliminary study for the aluminum version, the Ford GT80.

The design traces its origin to an idea sketch he did back in 1967, which was subsequently developed into the wind tunnel. The target drag coefficient was 0.24.

One outstanding point by which this design distinguishes itself from conventional body design is to be seen in the treatment of the front end, where air flow is not stopped but is intentionally led up the body.
