2014 Chevrolet Corvette: A Question aerodynamics

The precisely sculpted profile of the all-new 2014 Corvette offers more than just spectacular aesthetic - each line, air inlet and outlet area have been optimized for performance.

"The new Corvette integrated highest performance aerodynamic features than ever before, many from the Corvette racing program" to specify Tadge Juechter, chief engineer of Corvette. "For example, the flow of air over the radiator grille and reduces lift to improve the stability of the vehicle at high speed keeping the car pasted the floor. In addition, functional vents increase track performance by directing air to the brakes, even as heat exchangers for the gearbox and the differential. "  

To develop the aerodynamics group, the engineers started with data gleaned during years of high-speed performance on the track within the Corvette racing program - the most successful series of the American Le Mans program ever champion GT class in 2012. Such techniques have been integrated in the car series using some programs by modeling the most advanced computer to predict and monitor the flow of air over, under and through the body of the new Corvette.

"His sculptured lines generate excitement all ways as the Corvette has since six decades Elements made with carefully shaped into a wind tunnel to maximize the flow of air and improve cooling potential of a system more effective, "says Kirk Bennion, director of exterior design of the Corvette. "It is said that the function defines the form, but in the case of aerodynamic Corvette 2014, the form and function come together with cohesion to create effective beauty. "
