  • Essential properties of an automobile are affected by aerodynamics, first in its performance in terms of fuel economy (which is closely related to emissions) and top speed. The latter seems to be of minor importance today, at least in official advertisements; however, many customers remain interested in top speed. Anyhow, fuel economy and top speed are determined by aerodynamic drag.
