The air up there

Wheels (Australia) - - First Drives -

Aer­ob­lade is the name of As­ton Martin’s ‘vir­tual’ spoiler for the DB11. For­ward-fac­ing ducts con­cealed in the car’s C-pil­lars feed streams of air rear­wards. It ex­its ver­ti­cally from a slim slot cut in the rear of the bootlid. The broad jet thus cre­ated dis­rupts air flow­ing over the car and re­duces lift… just like a phys­i­cal spoiler.
