The brand new 911 GT3 RS packs essentially the most intense aero we have seen so far, with huge air vents within the hood, an enormous rear diffuser, big air scoops within the rear wheel arches, and entrance fender vents designed to maintain the automotive’s nostril planted at pace. Winglets subsequent to the entrance and rear wheels assist clean out airflow down the facet of the automotive, and fins alongside the roofline assist it direct air precisely the place it must be for the automotive’s true get together piece: its lively rear wing.

A flap within the big swan-neck wing closes off beneath braking to shut off a number of the airflow like an air brake after which opens again up beneath acceleration to let extra air by way of.
