with the wind
This meant that the car’s slender and compact rear-end design end has gone unmodified, but for a slightly raised rear lip. So as not to dilute its classic style and appeal, the team focused its efforts on the front end and the underbody. At the front, a bumper directs air underneath the vehicle, assisted by a flat floor equipped with small fins – a technique straight out of F1. This has the effect of speeding up airflow, which in turn enhances road holding and reduces drag. Two lateral scoops in the bumper channel the air into a narrowed duct in order to minimise the turbulence generated by the tyres on the sides of the car. From the door mirror stalks to a slightly notched roof line, every last detail has been painstakingly refined to ensure that the wind hugs the outline of the car as closely as possible.
