The standard one would be

S.R. Ahmed, G. Ramm, Some Salient Features of the Time-Averaged Ground Vehicle Wake, SAE-Paper 840300, 1984

although I am not sure if they have given Cl data, Cd however they have

I have done some comparisons with Ahmed body (experiments) and CFD, if you are interested in that I can send you a copy

Yes. Thank you very much.

Would you like to send me a link so that I can download them or you would like to send me them by email?

I'm confused. I registered in. But the webpage I see is still the same to the webpage before. The only difference is I can open the .dat files. But I still have no clue where is Cl and Cd data. I only find a Cd graph in their paper. Could anyone help?
