Accomplished racing car driver and noted EV advocate, Leilani Munter put her Tesla Model S through some of the most advanced aerodynamic equipment on the planet recently – the A2 Wind Tunnel.

Thankfully the whole thing was recorded and put out for the public to enjoy as well. (above video)

It seems like Ms. Munter did too:

“Video of our Tesla Motors P85+ Model S at A2 Wind Tunnel last week! Isn’t my baby gorgeous?!” – via her Facebook page

“Look who I took to the wind tunnel today. Lower coefficient of drag than my racecar! Thanks AeroDyn!” – via her Google+ page

Leilani currently competes on the ARCA racing circuit.  Her next race is February 15th at Daytona, where she will be driving the #55 car for Venturini Motorsports.  That race can be seen on Fox Sports 1.

Also of interest, Ms. Munter runs her own environmentally conscious blog Carbon Free Girlwhich we encourage everyone to check out!

Wouldn’t you expect a street car to have a lower drag coefficient than a race car that needs to minimize lift (which increases drag)? Shouldn’t be a surprise to a racer!

“Lower coefficient of drag than my racecar!”

An exclamation point can be indicative of excitement, exuberance and enthusiasm – not necessarily surprise. Are you trying to imply that the statement indicates a deficit of race car knowledge? I don’t read it as such.

It’s nice to see the smoke as it flows over the car but I like numbers.
Can that wind tunnel measure the air pressure above and below the car at different air flow velocities? Does it measure the weight of the car at different air flow velocities? Does measurable lift occur? Is there a measure of resistance at different air flow velocities?

NPNS!

Beautiful…

and the car looks good, too 😉
