Abstract: This paper presents experimental investigation of aerodynamics of a car named ADRENe, representative of small segment of current popular car spectrum, through wind tunnel tests. Out of two different strategies adopted for experimentation, one relies on measurement of pressures in effective domain upstream and downstream of car, and other relies on pressure distribution along centerline, over car profile. A good agreement between performance values obtained by these two methods independently, suggest their reliability and suitability for further experimentation purposes.
