1-Fast Car How important do you think aerodynamics are in determining the top speed of a car?
Channeling the airflow in strategic places is incredibly important in creating the least amount of drag, thus making the car go faster.
Aerodynamics are important for speed but really do more as far as styling is concerned.
The aerodynamics of a car isn't as important as how big the engine is and how much horsepower you've got.
Aerodynamics has to do with airplanes, not cars. Planes go pretty fast. Does that count?

Nobody looks cooler than someone in a convertible, but it's a shame the tops can puncture so easily.
