What do you think? Water cooled? Where is the RADIATOR? Air cooled? how does enough AIR enter to the ENGINE?
What do you THINK?

As a person living in the desert, I wonder what methods they used to test in high heat climates. I live near the old GM Proving Grounds, and no Slingshot was spotted herein.

Since it's a modern engine, I expect it to be water cooled... With an American motor, however, I reserve the right to be put back into 19th century technology.

According to the patent drawings it is a water cooled engine (Ecotec) with the radiator mounted in front with the airflow coming from the lowest center opening above the lowest front spoiler.

There is also a vent on the hood but it is not confirmed yet if this is functional. It appears functional in Patent figure 63.

This is Figure 63, where are you referring to?
