Boxfish car

This example a couple of years ago of a major automobile company designing it's cars inspired by the shape of a boxfish, which here is claimed to be "almost as good as the ideal engineering shape".


It's aerodynamic qualities uses 20% less fuel consumption and an amazing 80% in nitrogen oxide emissions.

Old news, but quite beautiful stuff.
