Below a newly designed front fender sits a notable carbon fibre front splitter, which works the atmosphere harder, complementing new front wing end plates to boost downforce amounts on the leading bodywork. There is a subtle air intake integrated forward of the leading edge of the back wheel arch, below a noticeable side intake supporting the entranceway, each of which feed clean cool air to the side- .
The layout that is reprofiled flows to the lines of the recent carbon fibre back wings. Two annular exhaust pipes, hammered from titanium, way out centrally through open bodywork below the back wing. Despite a more sophisticated layout, the bespoke crossover system was created to optimise performance and reduce weight, saving 1.1kg. Segments flanking the exhaust pipes and the back deck remain exposed; designed to evacuate hot air from your engine bay as economically as you possibly can, while additional louvres are featured by a lightweight polycarbonate back display. A carbon fibre rear fender that is louvred reduces air pressure on the back wheels, while the back layout is finished using a remarkable carbon fibre diffuser that is incorporated.
