The original 2CV was never intended to be a high-speed record-breaking vehicle. It was an inexpensive, efficient means of transportation that became an instant design icon.

What do you call a designer that can take such a simple, elegant design concept and completely miss the mark? Luigi Colani!

it's interesting to see what aerodynamics improvements and light weight design can do for a car performance, and even though I also think Colani overkills in most of his car designs, we can't deny he has shown us that auto industry has aimed other things instead of eficiency, and nothing better than making a streamline body over a production model to prove that, so you have how to campare, and of course, Colani has to build his models over existing power trains.

It's not a high speed record breaking vehicle. It broke the fuel economy world record, which has nothing to do with high speed.

I rather think it fits perfectly in the philosophy of the 2CV. As a spin-off, of course.

Genius is often misunderstood by simple minds.
Luigi Colani is a genius.

An IDIOT of the highest order!!

The Colani 2CV is all about high MPG's not high MPH. (Though I bet it performed much better in that regard as well!)
