    I'm assuming you are in the "energy" chapter of your texbook?

    "Streamline designed" is referring to the shape of the car (not the engine) which was designed with the use of a wind-tunnel. The result is a reduction of air resistance on the car. This means less of the car's energy is lost to "fricitonal" forces. So therefore more of the car's fuel energy remains as ... (you know)

    Ahem it might very well be respective of recent design improvements that are following racing technologies inasmuch as the intake manifolds are polished to un-restrict airflow, many design features are to improve (by reduction) the motors weight, reduce the number of components (other then the computerized pieces that have been added) as to make the processes of assembly, design, (itself) and repair, more efficient and accessable....

    Streamlined doesn't just refer to airflow principals it is and can be used as a general term for making processes smoother, making operation smoother, that kinda thing...
