Ac­tive aero patents for Corvette C8

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

We’ve seen the pro­to­types for Chevro­let’s mid-en­gined Corvette C8, now we’ve spied a trio of in­trigu­ing patents. The first fil­ing is for ac­tive side skirts that raise and lower depend­ing on ve­hi­cle speed. There’s also an ap­pli­ca­tion for a pair of ac­tive spoil­ers, one on the boot lid and the other on the trail­ing edge of the roof, with the last patent be­ing ap­plied for ac­tive air ducts be­low the front grille and via a roof scoop. We’ll have to wait to see how much, if any, of this tech ap­pears on the pro­duc­tion car, due next year.
