Aerodynamic styling, which the automobile industry has previously reserved for small sporty cars, will be introduced by Ford Motor Company to the luxury market in the near future. Ford is testing its "aero" design by displaying for the first time a one of a kind model called Continental Concept 90. The Continental Concept 90 will give luxury car buyers a taste of the mid 1980's and beyond and will provide the car company the opportunity to research the reaction to such a complete departure from the company's traditional luxury car design themes. Aerodynamic design not only is the most contemporary look in automotive styling, it also is the most fuel efficient because it minimizes power reduction through air resistance.
