1939 Schlörwagen Pillbug

Dr. Karl Schlör and his invention, the incredibly aerodynamic 1939 Schlörwagen Pillbug. The car achieved an impressive drag coefficient (Cd) of 0.13, unbelievably low even for today. Due to the start of WWII this car was not produced, and the only one made was confiscated by the British after the war and never seen again.

  1. After the war the Russians took one and added a propeller to it.
