Yeah, must have been a styling choice to go “old school” and have mirrors on a hypercar.

All these mid-engine cars make me interested in the C8.

Does anyone have a pic of the sidevents cut out and replaced with just wire mesh?

Photoshop may be your friend. Actually, on the rubber bumper cars a big wire mesh vent might be an improvement. I opened mine up a lot, like 2x maybe.

Better yet, leave the indent of the existing vent and just replace the flat “bottom” with mesh.

Do it something like post 11 photos of the hood.

Sorry if you are sick of hyper cars, but they are leading the fleet on aero.

Has anyone got photos of front canards on a c3?

The question intrigued me, so I had to scour the HDDs (over 100,000 images!) and the best I could come up with are a few C3s with what might be called "dive-splitters" or a highly modified "shovel nose."
Here are a few:


They leave little opportunity for "adjustment" but some could have canards added to the outside too. Elvira's closely approximates the grey nose in upper right, blends the splitter into the flare, and includes a vertical segment(side), like the two shown shown the left.

Cheers - Jim

Thanks for looking, , a tastefully designed canard for a c3 might be a viable product for someone. Probably would be a splitter canard package. Can’t think of a reason it wouldn’t work.

I remember seeing a c3 in a wind tunnel with lots of aero, I’m thinking Greg Picket, with a Greenwood widebody

It was close to this with more aero additions.
