That's a fascinating design study. On the one had, it's a very clean look, especially in the rocker panel area. But on the other hand, it now looks "heavy" in the hip area and doesn't look as aggressive.

The airtube on the new C8 Aileron is functional? At least it looks like it...

I like the roof air scoop, but would want it ti be functional. Maybe it is not an air intake problem, but a (rain) water intake problem Maybe it just needs an adjustable valve in the scoop.

At the factory visit of 2008 it was said, if I remember correctly, that in countries like Dubai sand was the problem... The tube could be opened without any problem in "less sandy" countries we were told. But anyway the tube is not connected to an airbox, air will just floath in the enginebay so only some components in here will be cooled with air from this tube. I believe only the very first Laviolette's and Double 12's have an airbox. But AX lover pointed out allready: It looks like the new Aileron will have one, and therefore the roof airintake will be functional!

Well I remembered the Aileron prototype to have an airbox, but I don't think the production version has one. If that's the case, sadly still no functional roofscoop + airbox combination.

You're right, it does have one, thankfully Quite hard to see though!
In the Laviolette GT2R one of the upper side scoops is the air intake. I think there the roofscoop is also functional (why else would it have wire mesh in it?) but only as engine cooling.

The airintake on the roof of the Laviolette GT2R isn't functional.
