Aero­dy­nam­ics

Car India - - FIRST RIDE -

By far, the most spec­tac­u­lar Audi Sport per­for­mance parts are the Aero kits, which were de­vel­oped in the Audi wind tun­nel. For the R8 and the TT they add clear-cut high­lights on the front air in­lets, the side sills, and the dif­fuser, sub­stan­tially im­prov­ing down­force. On the R8 the down­force is 250 kg at 330 km/h: an in­crease of over 100 kg. At 150 km/h, the ef­fect is even more pro­nounced — dou­bling to 52 kg. There is also a split­ter and flics at the front, as well as a large fixed rear wing. An en­gine hood with a large air vent is also avail­able for the TT. All parts are made of car­bon fi­br­ere­in­forced poly­mer (CFRP) or a com­bi­na­tion of CFRP and plas­tic for the TT.
