Halo said that Ogin's IEC-Certified wind turbine achieved the best aerodynamic coefficient of performance in the industry.
The "Evo II" featured the AMG PowerPack as "standard" but also came with a radical body kit that featured a massive adjustable rear wing, rear window spoiler, and 17-inch wheels, with the aerodynamic coefficient reduced to 0.

Intelligent identification algorithms have been widely used in the field of aerodynamic coefficient identification with the development of optimization theories [11].
The laboratory will carry out measurements in various classes including resistance measurement in still and wavy waters, hydrodynamic resistance and measurement of aerodynamic coefficient for surface and subsurface flotillas.
LES is not feasible for higher Reynolds number flow which is the case in this work and DES provides an accurate prediction of the dynamic change in the aerodynamic coefficient.
With all the problems inherent in moving model testing, however, no firm rule could be established, but basing the lift and lateral aerodynamic coefficient data at yaw on the dynamic pressure integrated over the height of the car model gave an improved consistency for most of the shear flow cases investigated.
