Low Aerodynamic Drag Bumper System


This front bumper with computer-controlled active air splitter keeps the splitter closed during straight acceleration to direct air under the body and toward the large rear diffuser/extractor, which uses the Venturi effect to convert high-pressure airflow to low pressure. During braking or cornering, the front splitter opens at the correct angle to provide a downforce of 220 lb/100 kg for improved handling. The combined system helps the vehicle achieve a best-in-class, low aerodynamic drag coefficient of 0.32 while supporting signature styling with impact and scratch resistance at lower mass and cost than the previous material.
