Comprehensive coordinated aerodynamic elements optimise driving dynamics, stability and control in M vehicles, especially at high speeds.
The striking front apron visually embodies the M vehicles' specific aerodynamics concept. On the racetrack, large air inlets ensure perfect cooling of the engine, charge air, oil and brakes, as well as cooling of the transmission oil in the M DCT. The two vertical inlets in the Air Curtain and the side M gills with integrated Air Breather behind the wheel arches create an accelerated flow of air around the front wheels.
This buffer of air encloses the wheel arches aerodynamically, minimising turbulence and reducing air resistance. The gurney flap, a spoiler on the rear edge of the tailgate, further optimises the aerodynamic balance between the front and rear axle, cutting down on lift. As a whole, the precise coordination of these elements works to create aerodynamic balance, making the cars racetrack-ready with that unmistakeable M-feel.
