  • Multi Function Rear Spoiler - acts as both downforce-producing wing and an inlet for direct airflow to cool the twin side mounted intercoolers.
  • Unique to this Sport, the rear wing is mounted higher than normal and is coupled with a 2nd adjustable bi-wing that creates more downforce.  Aerodynamic balance is acheived with the addition of a removable front splitter for front downforce.
