The Aero-P is a high-tech concept car, developed by UK-based Ariel Motors, that is designed with a number of structural changes that revolve around efficiently boosting performance by reducing drag.

This particular concept car is designed to combat the drag that can be generated when a vehicle is equipped with a fixed wing. The car features a special skirt that works in conjunction with a pair of compact fans to generate a vacuum environment under the vehicle, essentially sucking it down so that it stays flush to the road. For this reason, the concept car's technology is better suited for track applications rather than real-world roads.

In essence, the Aero-P concept car relies on vacuum-generated downforce to combat drag, something that makes for enhanced performance and control at high speeds.
