Video: Hole In Windshield Improves Convertible Driving

July 27, 2009

Convertibles are wonderful things, but riding in them -- especially at high speeds -- can take the fun out of what ought to be an exhilarating experience. Due to aerodynamics, the wind whipping around the vehicle has a tendency to jumble up inside the cabin, making for a noisy, hair-tossing ride. Luckily, some enterprising students at Stanford University (in the BMW-funded OpenRoad project), found a simple solution: just punch a hole in the windshield. This isn't the world's best video clip, but the difference is still noticeable.  [YouTube via Autoblog]
