The HRG Aerodynamic is a car that was produced by HRG between 1945 and 1949. A total of 45 examples were produced.

The first prototype example was chassis number W77 which was created in 1939/1940 and advertised by the factory in May 1940. Due to the Second World War, the car was road-registered for the first time in January 1946.

The aerodynamic bodywork was slightly heavier than the standard models, but with its air-slicing design, it was faster. It is even claimed by some to be the first all-enveloping, streamlined-shaped British sports car. It was an innovative vehicle that was ahead of its time.

The prototype car wore aluminum coachwork, had perspex side windows that retract into the doors, and a 10 gallon fuel tank.
