    The term "flyline" (or "fly line") does not seem to be a term typically used to describe cars. (Additional context might help.)

    Re: The meaning of flyline

    The context describes about the aerodynamics system of the car. The previous paragraph is "Ducts beneath the spoiler lips on the outside of the front air dam provide a steady supply of air to the brakes for cooling purposes, with air flowing directly to the inside of the wheels. These ducts also serve to reduce lift forces at the front, brake air guide blades on the cooling the brake system with even greater efficiency and an enhanced effect. Seen from the side, the car company boasts that typical flyline impressively reflecting the aerodynamic qualities of the car."

    The last one is an odd sentence. One would typically expect something else after "Seen from the side". It seems that the writer was a bit rushed and would probably like to do that one over again. Perhaps more typical:
    Seen from the side the car looks like it is moving even when it is standing still. Zoom!
