Thanks you!

CFD tests with the same ride height as MVRC (45mm more or less), but the car is designed around the 75m figure. Being a roadcar, i imagined it could lift a little (let's say up to 125mm) for the bumpiest roads and steepest ramps.
75mm will be good also to reduce the height sensitivity

It’s a cool looking car... for me I would add wing mirrors... cars without wing mirrors look like hot wheels toys to me!

Question; how realistic is the “foot box” area of the safety cell? This seems to be the difference between what is possible in a road-going HyperCar compared to an LMP1 style car where the driver is pretty close to centrally located....

Here is the foot box area of the F50.... you can see there’s not much room for internal flow from a front wing/diffuser;

The footbox template is quite small: 750mm total (the red thing). Which, however, is still much larger than an F1 footbox for 2 people (36% larger).

Luckily, my design allows for much more additional lateral space, as you can see.

Another difference compared to the car in your pic is also how high and how forward the footbox is positioned.
I took advantage of 3m wheelbase, shifting the cockpit 250mm rearwards compared to MVRC (totally doable; in line with other supercars).

I'm not saying that it is roomier than a Rolls Royce, buuut... :D

PS: a better view:

Yes, I guess the F50 is a mere “supercar”, whereas yours is a hypercar like Adrian Newey’s Aston Valkyrie. 😎

Looking forward to more updates!
