The LFT will feature all-new Lister designed carbon fibre body panels, helping to create a lighter and more aerodynamic vehicle. Exclusive Lister replacement parts include the front bumper, front splitter, rear diffuser, rear lip spoiler, rear extended wheel arches, a new grille design and new lightweight alloy wheels fitted with Michelin tyres.
The difference in wind-averaged-drag coefficient for a given vehicle or platoon configuration compared to a reference case is used to estimate the fuel-consumption savings, [DELTA][micro], of the particular aerodynamic vehicle technology for HDVs when travelling at the specified speed [51], according to:

Each team must build one of two types of energy-efficient cars: the prototype, a futuristic and highly aerodynamic vehicle; or UrbanConcept, a highly economical and innovative vehicle that resembles present cars.
Mr Bailey also unveiled the design of the new sleek, hi-tech and aerodynamic vehicle at the Eagle Farm hub with Clenergy Team Arrows Cameron Tuesley.
The upshot is a more aerodynamic vehicle that's positive, sporty and comfortable to drive or be driven in, yet still offers a decent amount of passenger space, including the boot, with its divided stowage compartments.
It is a surprisingly aerodynamic vehicle and the 1.6 petrol version I drove boasted a combined mpg figure of 47.8, which is good for a petrol crossover.
