The Chevrolet Corvette, like most American sportscars, is not known for its handling capability. That may soon change, though, judging by the three active-aerodynamic patents recently lodged by General Motors. The rst relates to aero channels used on the roof section or under the car to distribute air round the body on the move. The second patent is linked to side skirts which can lower and raise to alter the airflow under the car and create increased downforce for track use where ground clearance is not an issue. Lastly, an active spoiler patent was included. We’ve seen these before, but this time, the spoiler is able to move longitudinally along the car’s axis to ne-tune the aerodynamic balance.
