    After World War II, there was a high demand for commercial vehicles and, within a short period of time, Volkswagen became the prominent leader within this division of the automotive market. The very first production model of the Type 2 emerged from the sketches of Dutch Volkswagen importer, Ben Pon, on November 12, 1949. Prior to production, the initial prototypes tested poorly in the wind tunnel at the Technical University of Braunschweig, and ultimately, functional modifications were made to the design to improve the overall aerodynamics. In the image below, which Volkswagen model has the lower drag coefficient and what were the simple design modifications that resulted in the difference?


    GL IMG TXT IMG

    The Volkswagen Type 2 model on the left in the image above has the lower drag coefficient (0.44) than the Volkswagen Type 1 model on the right (0.48).

    The original Ford GT40 was built specifically by the Henry Ford II racing division in order to beat Enzo Ferrari in the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans.

One of the key figures that lead to the historic success of the Ford GT40 is the legendary Carroll Shelby. It must be noted that there were also a number of other influential contributors including, but not limited to, Roy Lunn, Ray Geddes, and Donald N. Frey, the main team that ultimately developed the Ford GT40, as well as the appointed drivers involving Bruce McLaren, Chris Amon, Ken Miles, Denny Hulme, Dan Gurney, Jerry Grant, A.J. Foyt, Pedro Rodriguez, Lucien Bianchi, Jacky Ickx, and Jackie Oliver.
